 Key safes, mechanical or electronic, which is better?

You have already decided to buy a safe, but which one should you choose? There are many  factors to take into account when choosing the one that best suits your needs, such as the  type of objects you are going to keep in it, the place where you are going to place it and,  above all, the ideal type of lock for you, then comes the question that many of us have asked  ourselves in this situation, key lock, mechanical or electronic, which one is better? Here we  explain the main differences.

Key lock

Key locks are the oldest, they were in fact the first to exist and are therefore also the  simplest, as you only need one key to open them. The main points to take into account when  choosing this type of safe is to make sure that the lock is always of good quality and able to  maintain its function in the long term and above all to keep the key in a safe and easy to  remember place, as without it, opening the safe will be complicated and you will need to call  a locksmith.

Mechanical lock

Safes with mechanical locks, as well as key-operated safes, are the oldest of all safes. 

This type of safe offers a very reliable system with a minimum risk of failure, its operation  consists of internal discs that through a series of turns on both sides of its external roulette  are placed in the correct position so that the lock of the safe is unlocked. 

The main advantage of these safes is that they do not need batteries to operate, so as long  as you know the combination you can open it whenever you need to, however, sometimes  they are not easy to open and may require some maintenance.

Electronic lock

This type of lock does not need a key, so you don’t have to worry if you lose it or where you  have stored it. 

Safes with this type of lock are battery operated and have a keypad where you will have to  enter the numerical combination you have chosen at the time of installation every time you  want to open it, which is a totally secure option as there are an endless number of  combinations. 

You should bear in mind that, although safes with electronic locks are among the safest on  the market, as they are battery operated, you may have problems opening them when the  batteries run out, however, there are different ways to open them when this 

happens, here here we tell you how.  ( /) 

Among the safes with electronic systems we can find those with biometric analysis systems,  which detect fingerprints for opening, making them ideal for those who prefer easier access  without compromising security. 

Now that you know the difference between the main locks and combinations available on the  market, you are ready to choose a good locking system for your safe.
