There are 5 very important things to keep in mind before buying a home safe. And you can buy a home safe with an open mind. So here are some tips:
1. Types of home safes
Before buying a home safe, it is important to know what items and equipment these powerful security tools are supposed to protect. In this case, we are more aware of what to buy and what to order.
For example, you don’t need a large or multi-storey safe to store gold, coins, jewelry, and money. Arka’s 250mz model fireproof home safe is one of the most suitable safes for home use.
The dimensions of the safe must be appropriate for the home. That is, not too big and bulky, not too small, not too long because the best place for the safe in the house is the bedroom or inside the closet.
Lightweight digital home safe is the best option in such cases. Because it is lightweight and portable, it can be better hidden from public view and it will have higher security. But the box must be screwed into the closet or wall so that it cannot be moved without opening the door.
If you’ve been shopping for family documents and photos, you’ll need to buy a larger and storey safe like safes used in agencies. Because in real estate agencies and consultants, the letters of preliminary agreements are large papers and the number of documents is high and their classification is very important.
2. Types of Codes
The mechanical code protects the old safes from theft and robbery. With the advancement of technology, digital codes came to market. And they opened their place in the safe industry. Working with these locks seems easier and safer at the same time.
Because it doesn’t give the opportunity of trial and error to the thieves of the locks. If we mistype the password several times, it will be locked automatically and it won’t work for a while. There are also combined safes that are both fingerprint and encrypted.
Recently, fingerprint safes have also reached the production stage and they have found a lot of demand among customers. Our suggestion is to provide the same type of safe that no longer needs to memorize numbers and it has a higher security.
With the advancement of technology, face recognition safes, smart or robotic safes and even a combination have emerged, each of which has its own application. It is important to keep in mind how easy it is for you to buy a home safe.
Safes are often heavy. Because they are not easy to move and they are anti-theft. To become fireproof, the safe must be filled with concrete, not plaster, and plaster must not be used in its construction.
To buy a home safe, you need to know if you have to move a lot every year, you have to pay a separate expense for transportation and moving it on the floors of buildings.
3. Buying the safest home safe
Protection against water, fire and theft are the three essential features for the best home safe which must have at least one of these features. Which type of protection do you need most? Anti-theft, waterproof and fireproof. Which one is your priority?
Combined safes that have multiple protection systems usually have a higher safety percentage. If it is necessary to keep important documents and papers, waterproof characteristic of the safe is mandatory.
A waterproof safe has a very high qualitative rank especially if the safe is anti-theft and fire-fighting. If such a safe is armed with advanced and modern security systems and warning technologies, the first option is to offer it to consumers.
4. Buying anti-theft home safe
If you particularly want to focus more on one of the protection systems, the anti-theft home safes have a very high level of security. And it’s a good option; In order to be anti-theft, the kind of alloy used in the body and its material must be anti-drill and anti-perforated; also, the joints must be anti-crowbar, antiknock and anti-break.
In fact, an anti-theft safe may not be great, but it can generally meet your needs. The best home safe should withstand at least 15 minutes of attack by thieves with welding and explosives and common tools and equipment.
With this regard, Arka’s fire resistant safe has been able to create a hidden anti-theft system in its safes so that it is not visible and it is installed behind the door. That’s why it seems impossible to stop working.
A portable home safe can be carried by the individual without the need for special equipment. And to be anti-theft, they must be connected to the installation site from the inside by special screws.
Recently, alarm anti-theft systems have been added to newer safes with sensors. As soon as the sensor notices that the box is being stolen or damaged, or is carrying out, the sensor activates the alarm system and notifies the owner of the safe. This information can be via alarm or text message, etc.
5. Buying fireproof home safes
To be fireproof is highly important for consumers; For example, people who want to keep very important documents need to order or to choose a fire resistance safe.
For example, a box that is supposed to take care of important documents and papers must have an internal temperature less than 176 degrees Celsius, even in a fire.
CDs and computer devices have a low melting point, and the internal temperature of the safe should not exceed 51 degrees Celsius. For audio tapes or thirty-five mm slides or old audio tapes, the temperature of the room should not exceed 61 degrees Celsius.
It is enough for home safes to resist against fire about 30 minutes. Because fire is transmitted quickly, it takes an average of 20 minutes for a room to be burnt in a fire.
Of course, safes with a protection rate of 1 to 2 hours are produced for homes that you can buy if you wish. This kind of information is written on the safes and on the packing, and you should be careful when you want to buy it.
Installation of a home safe
Be sure to specify the location and installation of the safe before buying your home safe; naturally, the best thing is to hide the safe as if it is not easily visible. The best place can be a bedroom or a closet.
The exact size and area of the desired location must be known before the purchase. Even if you have made an online sale, you must be smart and at least you can call the company’s experts by phone and specify the exact dimensions for them.
The best place to install a safe is actually the safest possible place in the house. The best place to be safe from fire is in the basement of the house, where there are usually fewer flammable devices.
Underground is not a good place to live if you live in a flooded area. The bedroom is a good place to hide and to camouflage the safe, but on the other hand, this would be the first place that thieves will check it.
