Safes: The Secret To Keeping Your Small Valuables Protected

Jan 11, 2008
A home security safe is a good, secure place to store smaller valuables in an easy, inexpensive manner.

Even though computers are very popular and can be useful with home security, a home security safe can still be very useful. You can use one for legal documents like a will, car titles, old pictures or smaller collectibles like jewelry or stamps. A samller security safe is a much better place for these type of items than just leaving them out around the house or in a dresser drawer.

Safes come in a range of sizes to suit any need and just about any budget.

Small wall safes not only look good, they can easily be hidden as well. There are even smaller safes that you can put in a closet that are fire proof too. Smaller wall safes can be hidden behind paintings or other locations in your house that are hidden, but easy to get to. Some wall safes can be be turned sideways so they can be put into a floor, too.

Home security safes range from smaller portable models to ones that are the size of a room. Not only banks use the larger models. They can also be used as a panic room in your house, which is a place for you and your family to gather in an emergency. Some medium sized safes can be used for storing firearms like rifles and shotguns.

Safes are made up of a variety of different materials ranging from a hard plastic to titanium alloy. The safes also come with a variety of locks from key entry to a keypad entry or a combination lock. When a safe is manufactured to certain specifications they may even be bullet proof and fire proof. When you are shopping for a safe, make sure to read all the information provided. Don't assume it is fire proof or anything else just by the way it looks.

Several styles depend as much on stealth and disguise as they do on strength. So-called 'can safes' look like ordinary household products, such as deodorant cans or coffee pots. They could be easily broken, but because they look just like household items no one would think to look inside. For those on a tight budget these are often no more than a few dollars. But don't be tempted to brag too widely about your clever 'safe'. Word can get around.

Also available are the electronic or computer-integrated model safes. With these you can program them so that they will only open at certain times, just like a bank does. This is a great feature when you have children that like to poke and prod.

With the electronic models there are other options available for added security. They can be set up for fingerprint access which is great, because then you do not have to worry about remembering a combination or password.

Regardless of the type of home security safe you decide to buy, just taking a little time to research the different safes available will help you find the right one for your purposes.
