Additional Ways to Control Access to Your Safe

Posted on: 27 September 2017


Privacy is an important issue, and people spend large sums of money to prevented unwanted access to their homes. Many people have invested in safes to keep their valuables secure. Some of the valuables stored in them include cash, jewelry, and passports. Modern safes can be customized to suit the needs of the buyer. You can have it built into the wall or a display cabinet. You should always ensure that the keys and passwords to your safe are secret and no one has access to them. There are certain measures that you can add to existing security systems to control access to your safe.

Use Hidden Message Security Tapes

These security tapes will leave a message when they are removed or tampered with. Some hackers have software and devices which they use to get the access codes to your safes. You can, therefore, lose your valuables. However, these security tapes will often leave a mark when anyone attempts to remove them. You can order a few rolls over the internet and wrap them around your safes. Many thieves try their best to hide their tracks and do not want to leave such marks behind. Even if they have the right code or keys to the safe, they will leave it alone.

Keep Your Safe in Unexpected Places

The most common places where safes are located include the master bedroom, in the wardrobes. You are therefore at high risk of losing your valuables if intruders come to your home. An ideal strategy is to shift from the norm and place the safes in unexpected places. Examples include in the children's bedroom or the kitchen. Additionally, you can have a safe in the bedroom as a decoy, and when attacked by intruders you can readily give them the key and passcode. This ensures that your valuables within your safe are protected.

Adopt Modern Systems

There are many ways to bypass traditional security systems which are adopted by many safes. One can steal a copy of the key and make their own copy, or they can run applications to find out your code. The best strategy is to adopt biometric features in addition to any of these systems. Once someone gets your code, they can initiate the entry process but since they lack any biometric information, their attack will be thwarted. At all times, you should be one step ahead of people who might be planning to steal your valuables.
