Rated 5 out of 5 by Fred8 from Excellent Home Safe I replaced my 17-year old Sentry Safe (combination knob & key) with this one. The option to open this new safe with EITHER the fingerprint, PIN code or a key is much more convenient than my old safe. And registering the safe's information online gives me peace of mind knowing that the information to my safe is encrypted on Sentry Safe's website. The instructions on the manual are clear and easy to understand. The dark grey color of the safe looks a lot better than the beige of the old one. I especially like the handy compartment built into the inside door of the safe. It is perfect for credit cards and passports. Thank you, Sentry Safe for this modern, affordable safe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rwagoner from Seems well built This is a good size for our needs. We wanted fire and water protection since our bank no longer offers safe deposit boxes, and this offers it. The fingerprint sensor makes it easy to open — a nice improvement over our old one in which the fingerprint sensor never worked. It seems well built. I’m not expecting high security- these aren’t made for that. I hope the hinges last longer than my old one in which the top hinge mount came off. But even with the bad hinge the items were secure; like this one, the hinges are not part of the lock system nor needed for fire or water resistance. This is a good combination of protection and price. Perfect? No, but that would cost a lot more. I do recommend this model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DuraSell from Poor Design or Poor Customer Service I called customer service to report the safe does not always open after getting the green indicator showing correct pin entered. The ludicrous explanation was that the batteries need to have and expiration date beyond 2029!!! Maybe he owns stock in Duracell or Energizer. The better explanation I discovered was maybe I wasn’t turning the lever hard enough for fear of snapping it off (I’ve broken things before thinking more force was needed). We’ll see if this fix resolves ongoing future attempts to open the safe. I was on hold to reach customer service for close to 30 minutes; definitely a waste of 30 minutes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bdavis1966 from I am glad I purchased the safe, but... I had considerable trouble with the fingerprint setup. First there was a small plastic covering over the sensor that should have been mentioned in the instructions. The video instructions on your web site did not work at all for adding my fingerprint. I finally used the instructions in the manual and was able to register the fingerprint. I was disappointed to find how thin the metal was and most of the weight seems to be from the white diatomaceous earth or what ever the white material surrounding the interior is. I assume that material is what makes the safe fire resistant and that is more important to me than someone breaking into the safe. I don't regret buying the safe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MKSS from Like but just one thing... We are very happy with the safe in total. The only suggestion would be to mention in the specifications that bolting the unit in place deletes the water proof feature. That was an important feature to us & likely to others. Thankfully, we read all the paperwork before securing it. We decided it wasn’t crucial to our use to immobilize the unit so we are still pleased with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bo Jangalz from No real issues except I am really happy with this safe so far. No real issues except for getting into it the first time... While looking at the instructions, the first step should show where to install the batteries. I could figure out how to open the safe the first time and the instructions did not seem clear about the first step of installing batteries and/or where they actually go. This is the only issue, other than that, really enjoy the biometrics access. NOTE: Place your finger on the fingerprint reader, do not swipe it down as the instructions state with setting up your biometrics access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NovaSam from Simple to setup, and secure I enjoy the ease of use and setting up pins and bio-metrics. Have not had any issues yet. Recommend registering your safe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tamzkarma from 100 lb. useless paperweight and awful company I have has this safe for two days. It has not worked property since coming out of the box. The code I programmed does not work 80% of the time. The safe will not allow me to program the fingerprint. I tried for hours! Customer service is rude and condescending. They do not help. The customer service hours prohibit anyone that works a normal job from calling for help, as their hours are 8:30 - 5:00 CDT. I pity anyone that has a problem with a safe from this company, cannot access it and needs help on short notice or "after hours". You will be out of luck. DO NOT BUY!
