Why a battery powered code lock?
There are many advantages with electronic code locks. To give some examples, you don't need to carry any keys around, there is no risk of loosing keys, and you never get tempted to hide keys, which comes with great risk.
Besides the aforementioned obvious advantage of code locks, code locks are particularly useful when many are supposed to have access to the safe.
Lastly code locks are just a more modern system which by the way also increase the second hand value of your cabinet should you consider selling it in the far future.
There are multiple security advantages with a code lock compared to keys. Firstly, since high security keys are often long and bulgy (sometimes with double axes) they are quite uncomfortable to carry around.
This issue often results in ill-fated attempts at hiding keys somewhere in the vicinity of the cabinet.
Many burglars are unfortunately well aware of this practice, which of course means that there is a very high risk they will find your "hidden" keys.
Lastly, if you lose a key, there is always a risk of it ending up in the wrong hands, which subsequently of course allow for silent and easy access to the content until it is noted that the key is missing.
Economical perks of a code lock
Security keys are copy protected for obvious reasons.
or if that isn't possible, completely changed, which of course is even more costly.
With a code lock on the other hand you can just tell more people about the code or change the code/codes if a code ends up with the wrong people. Very easy and completely free of cost!
Avoid economical damage due to searches for "hidden" keys!
If a thief sees a safe with key lock, there is a great risk that they will suspect that the keys are hidden somewhere in the vicinity of the safe.
This will, in light of their scarce time, likely often result in an aggressive and careless search for the keys, which subsequently will result in chaos and damage to your property (even if there are no hidden keys to be found).
The cost of such damage can quickly surpass the additional cost of choosing code lock instead of key lock.
This code lock is powered by a normal 9V battery. We recommend you to use Duracell Ultra power batteries for best possible lifetime and performance.
The approximate operating time for a battery in this type of code lock is 1-2 years for average use.
If the battery runs out it is easily replaced from the outside of the cabinet.
Even if the your code lock batteries totally run out, the chosen codes will remain the same for as long as needed as they are stored in the code lock until you change them.
Improve security even more!
By changing code and digits occasionally (e.g. 3-5 times a year) you will increase the level of security immensely.
On the one hand by decreasing the risk of unauthorised getting hold of a functional code,
and on the other hand by avoiding potential unequal wear of the keypad buttons that could otherwise hint about which digits are used in the code.
Therefore, we recommend that everyone who purchases cabinets with electronic code locks change codes / numbers at least 3-5 times a year.
This lock can be set with up to 9 codes in total, One master code, one group code, and 7 user codes. You can only change the user codes if you know the master code, or the group code.
