- Safes locks are either mechanical or electronic fastening devices that are released by a physical object (such as a key, keycard, fingerprint, RFID card, security token, coin etc.), by supplying secret information (such as a keycode or password).
- The pin tumbler lock uses a set of pins to prevent the lock from opening unless the correct key is inserted. The key has a series of grooves on either side of the key’s blade that limit the type of lock the key can slide into. As the key slides into the lock, the horizontal grooves on the blade align with the wards in the keyway allowing or denying entry to the cylinder. A series of pointed teeth and notches on the blade, called bittings, then allow pins to move up and down until they are in line with the shear line of the inner and outer cylinder, allowing the cylinder or cam to rotate freely and the lock to open.
- An electronic lock works by means of an electric current and is usually connected to an access control system. In addition to the pin and tumbler used in standard locks, an electronic lock connects the bolt or cylinder to a motor within the door using a part called an actuator. Types of electronic locks include the following:
- A keycard lock operates with a flat card using the same dimensions as a credit card or US and EU driver’s license. In order to open the door, one needs to successfully match the signature within the keycard.
- A smart lock is an electro mechanics lock that gets instructions to lock and unlock the door from an authorized device using a cryptographic key and wireless protocol. Smart locks have begun to be used more commonly in residential areas, often controlled with smartphones. Smart locks are used in co working spaces and offices to enable keyless office entry.
- A safe (also called a strongbox or coffer) is a secure lockable box used for securing valuable objects against theft and/or damage from fire. A safe is usually a hollow cuboid or cylinder, with one face being removable or hinged to form a door. The body and door may be cast from metal (such as steel) or formed out of plastic through blow molding. Bank teller safes typically are secured to the counter, have a slit opening for dropping valuables into the safe without opening it, and a time-delay combination lock to foil robbers/and or thieves. One significant distinction between types of safes is whether the safe is secured to a wall or structure or if it can be moved around. A less secure version (only suitable for petty cash) is usually called a cash-box.
Specifications for safes include some or all of the following parameters:
- Environmental resistance (e.g., to water or dust)
- Type of lock (e.g., combination, key, time lock, electronic locking)
- Location (e.g., wall safe, floor safe)
- Smart safes as part of an automated cash handling system
- It is often possible to open a safe without access to the key or knowledge of the combination; this activity is known as safe-cracking.
