Under Lock and No Key

Under lock and no key

Thieves have a knack for taking what’s dear to their victims, and they often don’t limit their search for useful items to what’s conveniently located in a trash can. With that idea in mind, some safety-minded manufacturers are touting the benefits of high-tech locks on a familiar driveway sentry.

Keyless deadbolt technology using a numeric keypad has been around for a number of years. Combining both ease of use and safety, the devices promise protection against intrusion as well as convenience for the owner. Just like deadbolts on a door, mailboxes have also entered the keyless lock revolution.

Mailboxes designed with 14-gauge steel doors requiring a code on a keyless entry pad for access are available to satisfy those looking for increased protection of their mailed valuables. The boxes are designed with a slot for depositing articles into the receptacle and a special compartment for outgoing items.

As advanced technology continues to develop, more security options for protecting ones valuables will certainly follow.

What technologies do you think will be used to protect valuables in the future?
