• Hard to manipulate: Most digital safe locks are a Group 1 lock, meaning its hard to manipulate because you have 999,999 possible lock combinations. That would take a thief 27 years to go through every possible combo. On top of that, most safe e-locks have a lock out mode, which means after 4-5 wrong attempts, it shuts down for around 15 minutes.
• Quick and easy: A simple 6 digit code will get you into the safe quickly. It's convenient, and also much quicker if you have to keep your emergency firearm in the safe.
• User friendly: An electronic safe lock is designed for you to be able to change the existing combo to whatever new combo you want, whenever you want. And most code changing sequences are very easy to understand and follow.
• Power friendly: Most electronic safe locks have the battery outside in the casing that's easy to get to and easy to change. Plus, they have an internal power source that will remember your code even when the battery dies, so all you need to do is change the battery and you're good to go.
• Multiple Users: Some electronic locks allow multiple codes, usually with a manager code that controls the rest. This is a game changer for a lot of businesses, allowing for the revolving door of employees over time.
• Light the Night: A lot of electronic locks come with a light source so you can easily see the keypad.
• Electronics lifespan: Probably the biggest drawback, but also the most misunderstood. Like all electronic devices, an electronic safe lock will eventually fail. However, if its a quality brand you should get 8000 to 10,000 openings out of it. That's a lot of openings.
• Power reliant: Electonic safe locks run off of batteries, so you need to keep up with that.
