After receiving a number of questions from prospective customers about whether this unit can be wall mounted, I started to research others' answers. OF COURSE it can be wall mounted. And, to prevent the contents from falling out when it's opened, you install a couple of gun magnets for 7 bucks. I just finished installing the safe on the wall directly above my head. I can easily, silently, and in complete darkness, open the safe, put my dominant hand on the grip, and tug it free from the magnet in <2 seconds. Very nice. And now, no chance anything will be blocking the safe door - and I get to use 100% of my nightstand!
Ever since seeing "The GunBox" videos, I thought RFID was the way to go. It makes sense, especially if the RFID chip is permanently in the possession of the gun owner (i.e. wristband or ring). The cost (>$300) was a bit extreme, but I contemplated it based on the novel idea, and the seemingly ultimate level of childproofing. By chance I came across this safe, and for the price difference, I couldn't help but be intrigued.
Biometric scanners seemed gimmicky. Every phone, laptop, or other device with scanners (i.e. lockers at theme parks) all seemed too inaccurate, or took too long to verify and unlock. After watching the Sentry video, I thought it can't be THAT good. I ordered it, and have had a couple days to play with it.
I cannot believe how accurate and FAST the scanner is. I've TRIED to stump it by putting my registered finger at various angles, wet, cold, it mattered not. This thing has been 100% accurate, every time. Unregistered fingers, no way. And it opens in under second. It is every bit as good as the video would lead you to believe it is.
On an aside, the manual explicitly says not to lock the two keys in the safe, since they are the only way to open it should the electronics fail. Well, I didn't heed the warning. I locked them in the safe as I prove to my wife how well the scanner works. As I swiped, the green light blinked (indicating authorized access), then blinked red, and NO POWER. The thing just went dark. Nothing I did would wake it up. I called Sentry, and their agent explained that with sub-standard batteries (I was using Rayovac) of questionable age, they may deplete so quickly, the low battery warning may not activate. Further, without the key, the only option was to get a notarized form (found on their website) emailed to them, and pay $15 to have new keys sent out. Forget that.
I asked about specific weaknesses the safe might have to be able to defeat the lock without causing permanent damage. Of course, they would neither confirm nor deny that such a weakness exists. That ended the call, and I started poking around.
While I don't want to reveal what I determined, I can say that it is not only possible, but actually quite simple to access the latch mechanism and manually cause it to release - without ANY damage to the safe. Should anyone need detailed instructions on how to accomplish this, reach out to me by commenting on this review and I'll share my knowledge with you.
For the record, I am departing for a month-long trip in an RV in two days. Having a 3yo and a 15mo child with us, this safe was an absolute necessity if we were going to travel armed. Thus, waiting for a replacement key (which takes 3-5 days after submitting the notarized forms) simple wasn't an option.
As for the batteries dying so quickly, I don't know if I buy that. After getting into the safe, I was able to resume using it (albeit with the keys in my hand) on the same set of batteries. In fact, I've unlocked it at least a couple dozen more times getting my wife's fingers scanned and testing. I will end up using a 6V wall wart, and running that to the 9V battery clip to power this thing with AC. That will eliminate the possibility of dead batteries and hopefully increase reliability.
I've got two more of these on order... One for each night stand, and one for the RV.
I left this exact same review on Sentries website and the picture bow shows what I got back. They "moderated" my review which means they deleted it because they didn't like the truth about their product. Shame on them for not be truthful and honest.
It's worth noting that the mounting screws that come with this are for screwing the safe directly to studs. This obviously was not going to work for me, so I ended up sourcing some machine screws + fender washers from Lowes to create a nice mount kit. Clearly this is not as secure as bolting to studs, but it's enough of a deterrent where someone would need to put a decent amount of effort into removing the safe from the drawer.
My single "complaint" here is that a few weeks after purchasing it from Amazon, I saw it for $25 cheaper at Costco -- literally the identical model.
All in all, 5 stars. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone.
