Default Saf-e-lert gun safe monitor

Ran across this thing on the net the other day and figured I'd take a flyer on it. Arrived today. Only takes 5 minutes to set up and starts working right away. Can monitor temp, humidity, safe opening/closing, and movement. Notifies your email and or cellphone via text of any alarms. Monitoring is free (at this moment).

Only annoying thing is if you're in the safe yourself you'll get 8 different alarms for movement and the door opening and closing. However those are easily ignored until you're done and then erased.

I'll post here a longer term test after a few months. It's made by liberty but will work with any brand safe.

I was able to get mine at jet.com for $167 shipped with a 15% off coupon.

So far so good. I got an email on Monday from the unit just to say everything is okay. Gave battery status, temp, and humidity. The next day I opened the safe to put a pistol away and I promptly got the door open and subsequent door closed messages. No other alerts and I do not believe there would be any cause for one.

Into the safe twice today and got alerts just as I should. No false alarms yet either.

Or you could just unplug your wireless router for the time you're in the safe.

The problem here is that the thief could do the same.

If they have enough forethought to go through the house, find the wireless router and unplug it, and then take the time to break into the safe then good for them.

The idea is to make life harder on them. Can't make your safe impervious.

You could place a wireless hotspot inside the safe. That would then have the saf-e-left on a wireless signal instead of the home wifi if you wanted a more "reliable" connection.

If you have a security system compatible with Honeywell 5800 series wireless sensors (Honeywell/Ademco, 2GIG, QolSys, maybe others), I would recommend placing a 5870 Asset Protection Sensor on your gun safe.

Unlike an IOT device, something connected to your alarm system will still work even if power and every other wire is cut to your house (you do have a cellular communicator on your alarm system, right?).

I know people who put these on their expensive road bikes they store in their garage. If they leave their garage door open for five minutes, and someone runs in and grabs a bike, the alarm goes off immediately. They are configured as 24-hour zones like a panic button. They do have to remember to bypass the sensor when they take the bike out for a ride, otherwise the alarm goes off.

Still working strong. Only a single false alarm. No missing firearms or open safe.
