Product description

  • This biometric gun safe uses fingerprint recognition for allowing access to the safe contents. For the matter of fact you can register up to 120 different prints to the safe which is huge considering the fact that there are not more than 5-6 members in a typical American family. Providing with database of so many fingerprints eases out one thing and that is you don’t have to worry about one finger print not working as 120 prints can be saved to its directory.
  • The interiors of the gun safe are lined with foam so that it prevents gun damage in case your gun tends to slide. This is an excellent feature as it guarantees the long life of your gun protecting it from any external damage.
  • Inside the gun safe they have also provided with pockets so that you can store your important documents too like your property papers, papers involving your business deals, government papers etc.
  • An algorithm is used to achieve speedy identification of fingerprints with it having low false reject rate(FRR) for a given false accept rate(FAR). This algorithm makes this machine smart enough so that every time someone a user touches a finger, it creates an extra database which decreases the chances of Frr happening.
  • This scanner comes with a 4 foot security cable that allows you to secure it to a fixed object which makes the scanner a great product for home and travel use.
  • The biometric scanner is mountable anywhere, in any direction.
