Product Description

Perfect for securing your valuables
Two solid steel locking bolts
Biometric Safe by Barska

Tried and true, BARSKA’s Biometric Safe is an ideal choice for storage of compact valuables and sensitive items. Whether electronics, important documents, jewelry, or small firearms that you are storing, rest easy knowing they are safe. Because of the safe's practical dimensions, it can be hidden in any location preferred by the owner. The Barska biometric safe (model AX11224) can store identities for up to 30 different users. The easy-to-use system allows you to register fingerprints in seconds.

Biometric Technology

The safe's biometric technology gives you the ability to quickly and effortlessly access your weapons and valuables in the time of an emergency. With BARSKA’s biometric safe, there is no more need to remember a complex numeric combination under duress. The solid steel two point dead bolt locking system guarantees security.

What's in the Box

With your purchase, you will receive the Biometric Safe, mounting hardware, and two emergency back-up keys. Factory pre-drilled anchor points allow you to permanently secure the safe to the floor or wall with the included mounting hardware. It's powered by four AA batteries (included), which can last for up to 2 years.

Care and Maintenance

To maximize security and performance, keep the fingerprint scanner clean. After any use, use a dry cloth to remove any smudges or prints from the fingerprint scanner. Test registered fingerprints every 6 months. When the door is closed and 3 repetitive beeps are heard and indicator lights flash red, it indicates the batteries are low.

The biometric (fingerprint) reader works every time.
This is the only way I could think of to have quick access to a gun but keep it totally safe from kids.

I recently received this biometric safe from Amazon. I ordered it on 8/15/10 and received it on 8/21/10 via fed-ex ground. The outer box was crushed on top but the safe was in perfect condition thanks to some very good packaging. Any past packaging/shipping problems have been fixed.

I ordered this safe because I wanted quick access to a weapon in a part of my home that is far removed from my gun collection. I decided I can open a biometric safe when my heart is racing much faster than I can a combination lock. I have two teenage children who I do want to have access to the weapon. Shortly after installing the safe and registering my fingerprints and my wife's fingerprints (We did several angles of our right index fingers per others suggestions), my 15 year old son WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE SAFE in 10 seconds using a trick he learned on the "Myth Busters" television show. I quickly learned that you MUST wipe the glass clean after each use or techno savvy teens CAN open this safe. (The instructions do not tell you to do this). With the glass cleaned my son was NOT able to open the safe. We now keep a wash cloth next to the safe for this purpose.

My children have grown up with firearms and I take them to the shooting range MONTHLY. Firearms are not taboo or a mystery to them and they are safer around firearms than most adults I know. The purpose of the safe is really to keep their friends out and prevent any temptation to show the weapon. However, after watching my 15 year old open the safe (even knowing he could not repeat it with the glass clean), if my children were younger or were at all inexperienced with firearms, I would invest in a more expensive biometric safe to insure they could not gain access.

This is the only way I could think of to have quick access to a gun but keep it totally safe from kids. The safe has NEVER opened for anyone who has tried it without thier prints programed in it. The only times it has failed to open for me is if my finger is at quite an angle to the reader or not in very far, its not picky but you can also program it with your fingers at angles to avoid any problem. My only complaint would be that I wish there was a way to not have the loud beeper go off as you open it, kinda defeats the stealth effect.

I'm giving this product one star only because I want to point out the dangerous flaw in the instructions to all buyers and potential buyers. Aside from this flaw in the instructions (not with the product itself) I find the product to be excellent - so please interpret this review accordingly. My one-star rating is a warning to users and not a judgement on the product itself.

I received the product this week and followed the set up process step by step as described in the user manual (dated 2008). I scanned each of my fingerprints and was happy to find that each would successfully open the safe. I stashed my loaded revolver and ammunition in the safe and locked the door, thinking all was secure. Two days later out of curiosity I had my 9-year-old daughter try to open the safe. She successfully did. With every finger! I then asked my 6-year-old son to try. Same thing. My loaded, ready-to-fire weapon and ammunition were completely unsecured. Imagine my horror! I thought I may have received a defective product, but I wanted to try the setup process again. I deleted all fingerprints and initialized the lock again. Then I followed the setup instructions again, step by step, with the same results.

With some experimentation, I found the fatal flaw in the instructions. The instructions as received with the safe say (under A: Registering Fingerprint):

1) Press initialization button on the inside of the safe door till a beep is heard.

2) Immediately place finger on scanner, you will hear 1 beep. Keep finger on scanner till you hear 2 long beeps, then take finger away. Registration of fingerprint is now complete.

I agree with most reviews previously given.

The print reader is picky. At first I only programmed one print. Recognition of this print was hit and miss. Programmed a 2nd print, same finger. Recognition is now probably 95%. With 3 or 4 prints programmed, recognition would be flawless. It has NEVER opened for an unauthorized print. I tried, I bought it 3 months before my handgun and tested it often. I can reliably get into it within 3-5 seconds.

It is very loud, particularly the long beep it emits when unlocking. I'm not concerned about it alerting a criminal. If they come to me, I already have my handgun out. If they leave, Fantastic, no blood stains on my carpet or conscience. 2nd, if my child or someone else starts messing with it or actually makes their way into it, I'll hear the beep from anywhere in the house. Also, if left unlocked after opening, it will start beeping at about 5 second intervals. There is around a 2-3 minute delay before this starts. A surprise feature that I appreciate.

Great amount of room inside. My subcompact, 4 boxes of ammo, 2 magazines, and personal documents fit just fine with room for a couple more handguns or other miscellaneous items. It is large and heavy which would prohibit it from being placed on all but the stoutest closet shelves.

****2 Year Update****

10/18/12 I have been using this for about 2 years 5 months

Overall opinion: I'd buy it again.

Still on original batteries. Electronics still work great. Doesn't get heavy daily use, but is used several times weekly.

As far as security, I have it bolted to wall studs with lag screws (from inside the safe of course). The wall and shelving unit would have to be destroyed to remove it.
