Home Security Safes for Fire and Burglary

We have many valuable items like jewelry, expensive paintings and collectibles that can be placed inside a safe to protect them from fire and burglary. In the past, people used to place important legal documents in safes as well. However, modern electronic systems have taken over the job of storing documents and other written material. Still, people use home security safes for storing expensive items and even electronic devices when they have to leave the house for a vacation.

Today, many types of fire and burglary safes are available. Some safes are hidden from view and are usually constructed behind a wall or a closet. They are protected by safety locks, passwords or other kinds of locking mechanisms. It is customary for wealthy people to have safes built behind paintings, and in other locations that are less accessible. Some safes can even be installed in the floor and their lock and opening knob can be hidden under a carpet or a rug.

In houses where there is a lot of stuff to be placed inside a safe, these structures are extended to look like small rooms. These rooms are also called safe rooms or panic rooms and provide extreme security by use of metallic doors, bullet-proof glass windows and fortified walls. People normally use such rooms to store laptops, heavy machinery, firearms, money, important documents, jewelry, borrowed items and other materials for their safety.

Safes are available in many different kinds of materials and safety mechanisms. These materials are plastic, wood, alloys of different metals especially titanium and steel, and many others. Dual and combination locks are the most common type of safety mechanism provided by these safes. They are easy to use and provide maximum protection from theft. The walls of a safe can be built with special materials and they can be made an inch thick or even more than that.

Electronically operated safes are also available now. They can be opened and closed by using a remote control and even through a computer by generating a command. These safes can be controlled from a remote location and a camera can also be installed inside to see that all things are safe and sound.

Biometric identifications systems to open the door of a safe are very much common in this category. Fingerprints are normally used to gain access to a safe. In such a system you don’t have to remember a combination or password, but these systems might be a little more expensive than others.  

A hidden safe in the house not only protects your valuable items from theft but can also be used to keep things away from small children. Expensive cell phones, laptops, digital cameras, fragile decoration stuff and other things can be protected this way. There are many sizes and styles of safes to choose from, so look around to find the one best suited to your requirements.
