Biometric safes are safes that are generally opened by use of a fingerprint and are built by many manufacturers including Browning, GunVault, Barska and so many more. Make sure to check out our list of biometric safe manufacturers.
While technically, according to Websters Dictionary, biometric means:
“the measurement and analysis of unique physical or behavioral characteristics (such as fingerprint or voice patterns) especially as a means of verifying personal identity”
The safe industry as a whole has pretty much considered the fingerprint as the main biometric lock of choice. As yelling at a safe to open may give a tactical disadvantage.
I do warn though, that not all biometric locks are created equal. I highly recommend reading customer reviews, and reviews online to see how you feel about the failure rate, or access rate of the lock on the safe you are considering.
The worst thing that could happen, is to not be able to access your safe due to a cheap biometric lock.
I highly recommend, if looking for a biometric safe, to only consider one with some form of quick backup, such as an electronic keypad. I’d recommend taking a look at the Vaultek VT10i [insert link], as it has many possibilities!
