Does it really work?

While the safe has some of the strongest builds, it has been seen to offer some of the most outstanding safeties to the gun and other valuables in the market.  Most sentry safes however have this problem with failing to open after sometime, probably due to clogging.

While this may be blamed partly on the user for having poor maintenance, the manufacturer seems to have been aware of this fact yet does nothing about it. In fact, they are sometimes indifferent to an extent of saying nothing can be done.

Gun safety in the home and offices are somewhat top priority areas and may not need something which can be tampered with at will.  The SentrySafe DSW3930 Biometric Fire-Safe may offer security but not the maximum required.

Because it comes with accessories for mounting, this may not be bad to deter the thieves from carrying it away. However, its weight alone is enough to keep pretty criminals away. It has a biometric system as well as a lock which give its user a choice.

The finger print scan mechanism it has, allows for two fingers scans in one go thus making it easier to access even when the other finger is having problems. It is mainly used in the safe keeping of firearms, with an allowance for some other important valuables.
