Are Electronic Safe Locks Reliable?
The job of a safe lock is to secure your safe, but also allow you easy access to the contents inside of it, which an electronic lock will do. A question that current and potential safe owners often ask is whether electronic safe locks are reliable. And the answer is yes, provided you are buying a high-quality electronic safe lock to begin with. Just like anything else, there are cheaply made locks and there are high-quality locks. Choosing a better electronic lock, made with heavy-duty components is always your best bet for reliability.
Electronics Make Your Life Easier
Think about all the electronic devices you might have around your home. They make your life a little bit easier, right? One of the best things about an electronic lock is how easy it is to open your safe. If you are faced with an emergency situation and need to get into your safe immediately, your electronic lock is usually more reliable speed-wise than a traditional mechanical locking system. Instead of fumbling in the dark trying to put your combination into a mechanical lock, you can simply punch your code into an electronic lock's keypad.
With an electronic safe lock, you can create, delete, and change the codes for unlocking it. You cannot do that with a safe equipped with a mechanical lock. Instead, you either stick with the manufacturers set code or have a locksmith change it for you at your own expense.
Liberty Safe Recommends SecuRam Electronic Safe Locks
Of the top reasons Liberty Safe chooses SecuRam electronic safe locks over those made by other manufacturers is because of their proven reliability. SecuRam has been an innovator in the industry and continually works to improve the technology used with their safe locks.
If a problem does come up with a SecuRam lock, it can usually be resolved by the safe owner, instead of calling for service or a locksmith. These locks require very little maintenance. Basically, all you need to do is change your lock's nine-volt battery every six to 12 months to avoid low-battery issues.
And if you are concerned about whether your electronic safe lock can stand up to electromagnetic pulses (EMP), SecuRam has you covered with their SafeLogic Xtreme lock. This lock will still work even when others fail after an EMP event.
