If you’ve ever wondered what a smart safe is, you might be thrown off by some common misconceptions. For example, there is a common misconception that money counters and smart safes are synonymous. While this may have been the case 10 or 20 or 30 years ago, it is no longer true today. Today’s smart safes are the known traditional safe boxes that you buy to store your valuables but with innovative tech to keep you connected to your valuables via the internet or your phone. Generally, people tend to underestimate just how smart these ingenious tools are, and like everything else in the world, there are many levels of quality and levels of security for smart safes. Basic smart safes just connect to your cell phone, while more advanced smart safes like The Space Safe bring you the latest technology to protect your valuables with dozens of more features. Once you understand exactly the benefits of what a fingerprint safe smart safe is, you’ll see why The Space Safe is the best modern solution for your privacy and security.

What Is a Smart Safe?

A smart safe incorporates cutting-edge technology into the design to increase protection and connect you to your safe and your most prized possessions. Although you end up paying a premium to have this connectivity to your safe, it’s the perfect home-safe security tool and totally worth the cost. Having a safe with futuristic abilities allows you to put your mind at ease, knowing your cash, jewels, documents,and other valuables are protected from theft. Plus, you can use your safe anywhere, from your home to your office.

Basic designs may incorporate a log of your safe’s activity or allow for remote unlocking. Other companies offer more extensive features, providing better security and connectivity. When choosing the safe that is best for you, you’ll want to consider what features matter most to you. Generally, the more you pay for your safe, the more features and more security you get. 

A fingerprint safe uses biometric technology, such as fingerprint recognition, to restrict access and block anyone without authorized access from opening it. It’s a great alternative to using keys or combinations that might easily be misplaced or stolen. The Space Safe is the only smart safe to truly allow multiple users to enter their biometric information for a quick, convenient unlock, allowing up to four user profiles with multiple fingerprints per user. With its 360-degree fingerprint detection system, access and security are a breeze. 

The ability to remotely control and monitor your safe is another amazing feature some brands offer. With more advanced smart safes like The Space Safe, you can easily check on the safe’s status and see who opened it and when, all with the help of The Space App – a feature only smart safes offer. These features are helpful for businesses or individuals who need to keep track of cash or other valuables by employee, by event, or during a specific time period.

The Space Safe takes remote monitoring to new heights with top-of-the-line tamper sensors. You’ll receive a notification if any gravitational shock, or drop is detected. It also is the only safe to feature an exterior camera and interior camera, so you’ll see who’s trying to break into your safe and what they’re trying to take in real-time.

A common concern that many users have is being locked out of their safe if a power outage occurs. Most modern safes are powered by batteries, and when they run out, it really is a disaster to get back in to switch the batteries. That’s because the only way to change the batteries is from the inside, and if your batteries die, make sure you don't lose your keys. With The Space Safe, you are constantly connected to power and have a backup battery in case of an emergency. In a worst case scenario, if the backup battery does die, just connect a battery pack to your safe and you’ll have instant use.

Very few safes have a low-power mode that will save on power while still keeping you informed about what’s going on with your safe – The Space Safe is one of them.
