Fingerprint Gun Safe Review
What Is A Fingerprint Gun Safe? Fingerprint safes are secure devices that use biometric technology to prevent unauthorized access. Biometric security is a system for controlling access that is based on a persons physical details, such as fingerprints. Biometric security can also apply to safes that are activated by voice authorization, iris scans, facial recognition and full hand scans, however, fingerprint guns safes are the most common form of biometric gun safes because they are the most affordable.
How Does a Biometric Fingerprint Gun Safe Work?
A fingerprint gun safe must first be programmed before it can be used. During the programming process, your fingerprints of authorized individuals are scanned and identification information is retained by the safe. The safe stores this information and uses it to allow future access.

The safe holds jewelry, important documents, and other valuables. Biometric is the most secure means of keeping valuables stored safely in the home. Prior to the invention of the locking mechanism on this safe, many people lived in fear that a child or a thief would gain access to their valuables. Peace of mind is possible with the use of a safe that has a biometric lock and can only be opened with up to 30 specific fingerprints of your choosing. The smaller dimensions of the safe mean that it can be kept out of reach of small hands, but still accessible to the owner.
If the contents must be accessed quickly, the touch of a finger in the correct position against the locking mechanism will open the lock and provide immediate access. No more need to remember a complex numeric combination under duress. This safe includes a key for traditional access in the event access to the fingerprint is not available. It's built to operate on four AA batteries (not included), weighs 31 pounds, and carries a one-year limited warranty.
