I was initially excited about getting this safe for home defense purposes. I wanted a gun safe that was readily accessible that used biometrics to access the safe. Although the scanner itself is pretty good (it looks very similar to those used on the Thinkpads), the underlying software/microcode that interprets the scanned fingerprints left much to be desired. Getting all prints properly scanned in took more time than I expected. Moreover, when trying to access the safe, it would take typically between 3-5 scans to get the safe to open. The safe employs some kind of servo/capacitor actuated system to pop open the doors. What I did not expect was they were relatively loud and if you are facing a home defense situation at night, plan accordingly -- your position has just been compromised. Still, I felt the safe was going to work for me until two weeks ago, I had to access the safe. It was then I discovered that the safe would not open. It recognized my fingerprint, and it stated the typical LCD message indicating the unit was "charging" to get to a state to open the doors, but the fingerprint LEDs kept flashing yellow and the doors never opened.

I contacted the Sequiam tech support and discovered that the company - SEQUIAM - had gone Chapter 11 and were out of business. Another company, BioMETRX bought all liquidated assets from SEQUIAM, including this safe in its current configuration (Biovault 2.0). I was told by the BioMETRX tech support that their company policy was not to honor any warranties on Sequiam sold Biovaults. In my case, my safe was 3 months out of warranty. What was shocking was that somebody who purchased this safe in January or February of 2008, could have a safe less than 6 months into a one year warranty and if it failed, there was no recourse.

I needed a gun safe that would fit in my nightstand and this was one of the only ones I could find. The motor noise is probably not audible outside my room but is still kind of loud. It also takes say 5 seconds to get it open once you press the button and scan your finger. The biometric scanner has worked very reliable so far. In my particular situation it works perfect.

Nice gun box. Looks very nice, great technology but,it takes some effort to get it open. My husband and I put in several of our same fingerprints and can get it open in about 5-7 seconds. It is very slim and easily fits in the bedside stand. I feel good knowing that the gun is safe from others and only opens for us. All in all a good box, just wish it was faster to open. Also needs some padding on the sides because the gun clanks around on the sides if moved. But it can be easily fixed with some adhesive foam strips :)

Seriously, a paperclip inserted into the hole in the side allows you to delete all enrolled finger prints, then just press the button and it's open.

This safe only worked a few times and then quit responding to any and all fingerprints. Reading online, this was a circuit board failure. Company was sold out and warranty is no longer valid. The box also does not come with a cable to secure it. Better to use the key lock boxes as this is the only way it seems to work. Some have said a paperclip could disable and open them. When it comes to security products, they have to work or you could die. My life is not work this "POS" and neither is yours. Do not buy these. As for the NRA endorsement, well they endorse crap from time to time. This is crap.

I would not recommend this product if you want to secure a firearm for quick access in an emergency such as a home invasion. The fingerprint access is not consistant; it takes 3 to 4 passes or more to open the safe. The idea is good but I think it needs more work. The NRA recommends this product but I wonder if they really tested it.

Too many false hits. If you want quick access to your gun.... forget this. Would work better to throw it.
