What Is the Best Type of Safe for Your Situation?

Security and protection come in many forms, and they don't always have to be self-defense. The security of your personal belongings is an important part of feeling safe in your home. Many people use safes to protect the items that matter most.

Safes are a trusted option to protect your most prized possessions, whether they are personal, financial or related to self-defense. Like self-defense weapons and home security systems, no safe is a "one size fits all" option. While there are multi-purpose safes, it is best to know which type best suits your specific needs. 

Whether you're a business owner, a homeowner or a gun owner, you need a safe that covers all your bases. Let's take a closer look at how specific types of safes can benefit you.

Safes for Business Owners

Business owners need safes that can protect their documents, mail and (most importantly) money. Drop depository safes are the best option for money, as they allow employees to drop cash, checks and receipts into a safe that stays locked in place at the end of every night. Approved managers can access the safe to make sure everything looks right and that all deposits are accurate.

But a drop deposit box shouldn't be the only safe in your business. A general back office safe is essential to keep all other documents safe from theft, fire or water damage. These safes are great for storing employee checks, banking information, change for drawers and deposits waiting to go to the bank. Finally, a mailbox safe is a simple way to protect your mail. Featuring a locking system that can only be accessed by managers or postal workers, these safes ensure that your protected documents remain safe. 

Safes for Gun Owners

While having a gun in the house provides you with lethal self-defense, firearms come with downsides. Numerous reports show that introducing a gun into your household can actually increase the likelihood of firearm-based assaults, murders and suicides. This research is clear evidence that every gun owner should have a home gun safe. Many veteran gun owners consider gun safes critical to responsible gun ownership. Safes ensure that firearms remain inaccessible from children but nearby when needed.

Biometric fingerprint safes have become popular in recent years. These safes will only open when a specific fingerprint is scanned. No two fingerprints are the same, so you can guarantee you are the only person able to access your firearms. Better yet, if someone breaks into your home and you need to grab your gun, there's no longer the worry of fumbling with a key or trying to remember the password under stress. Just scan your finger, and your guns will be available.

If you're looking for an inconspicuous option, floor safes are reliable for storing firearms away from your household. On top of needing a key or passcode, you can hide this safe in unexpected locations. These safes make sure your guns are secure at all times.

Safes for Homeowners

Home safes are essential items for homeowners, providing them with peace of mind regarding your valuables. Whether you're out on vacation or have multiple guests in and out of your home, you want to guarantee that your valuable possessions are safe from theft. Your home safe will do just that. 

Wall safes are perfect for storing jewelry, precious metals, money and important documents in a home office. If you're trying to protect your items at all costs, it's time to get a fireproof safe. Fireproof safes can save your essential files and currency in the event of a fire.

Portable Safes for On-The-Go Situations

Sometimes you need protection when you're on the go. Personal safes are excellent options for such occasions. They provide you with a secure way to stash money, documents and jewelry in your apartment, in your desk at work or in your gym bag. Some small safes can even fit a firearm, which could be useful for storage in an apartment where a gun safe wouldn't be feasible. 

Looking for something smaller? Can safes go the extra mile and look like any other piece of recycling in your home. Forget high-tech security systems and fingerprint scanners. A simple can safe may be just the thing you've been looking for to keep your valuables secure! These storage devices are discreet, functional and inexpensive. Disguised as everyday items like shaving cream cans, coffee canisters and beer, you can stash them in the pantry and no one will know. These safes are wonderful places to store some extra cash where burglars aren't likely to check. 

Lastly, cash boxes are perfect for business owners working out in the open, away from a traditional register. Instantly accessible, you can easily access cash and then lock whenever not in use. Cash boxes help you keep your money safe and secure when you're on the go. 

Whatever your security needs, The Home Security Superstore has the right safe for you. Research your options to find the safe best suited to your needs.
