STEEL PATRIOT

This is the first handgun safe I’ve examined that supports remote access as the primary means of opening the safe. The owner of this safe downloads a Bluetooth app and sets the safe to open when he carries his phone within range of the safe. The thinking behind this is that people to tend to have their cell phones on them at all times, and therefore would have truly “hands-free” access when approaching their Steel Patriot safes. I think this is a terrible idea, and I can envision accidents happening too easily. I would only recommend this device to someone who lives alone. This safe was examined July 9, 2018.
