In today’s world, we are more apt to have our home broken in to then we were back a few years. No matter how many locks you put on your home, if a burglar wants in he will find a way. Your kids may have friends that will use the opportunity to just “borrow” something if it is available to them. Not bad kids, but just the nature of the world today. Opportunity is the key. Put in a safe and that’s great but if your kid has the combination, he may open the safe while you are away to show off the contents and his friend makes a note of the combination and either opens it when no one is looking or comes back in while every one’s away and grabs something out of the safe for that extra cash.

Using the wifi from your internet connection, this handy little high tech box can be mounted on the inside safe wall with velcro or just set it on the shelf. Activate it with elertus.com for about $5.00 a month (less if you sign up for 3 years), and the alarm will let you know if the safe door is opened, when there is a change in temperature (either up or down), what the humidity is.

If you are going to have guns in your home and you have children, you must have a gun safe. While there are no laws that state you have to have a safe, if you want to protect your children by ensuring they cannot access your guns, you must be able to lock them away in a place where they cannot access either the guns or the ammunition.
You should choose your gun safe based on the type of guns you are planning to place in it. If you only have handguns, you can buy one of the smaller safes that can be stored out of sight and out of mind away from your children. If you have rifles, you will need a standing safe that looks a lot like a bank safe with room not only for your rifles, but all of your ammunition. Remember guns do not kill people – people kill people, you should always keep your guns locked up.
No matter what type of gun safe you need, you will find a large selection of them at Dean Safe ready for delivery.
The Gunvault SV500
is an unexpected design in an undercounter safe. Mounting easily with the included “L”-shaped bracket, this unit can fit any number of places. It’s not much larger than the handgun it protects, yet its steel construction makes it strong enough to protect against many attacks.
The SV500 “SpeedVault” offers electronic control through four rubberized buttons at the top of the unit. When you set up the SV500, you pick a code that you want the safe to respond to. The buttons are laid out in a simple square pattern and are easy to identify by touch alone, making it unnecessary to look at the unit while opening it. This means, of course, that you can access your weapon while not appearing to reach for it, or even in complete darkness. Either way, this method of entry control offers a fair bit of stealth. And it could be a good choice as a handgun safe for your car. Do check the regulations in your area; some jurisdictions greatly restrict how guns can be transported.
(Please note that, while electronic, this unit does not offer biometric entry. If you are interested in a safe with this form factor that opens via fingerprint recognition, you want the SVB500.)
The SV500 takes good care of your handgun. High density lintless foam cradles your pistol while in the unit, holding it securely in place. The SV500 should fit handguns with barrels up to five inches long; if your weapon is bigger than that, please call first to check with us about whether your gun can be accomodated by the SV500.
Dean Safe is proud to carry GunVault’s SV500, which is yet another innovative form-factor from GunVault. There are certainly handgun safes made of heavier steel (such as the Fort Knox Pistol Box), but GunVault is trying to hit the “sweet spot” of decent protection. clever, compact design and solid value.
We think GunVault hit the target dead-on with the SV500.
Two rifles and a handgun were among items taken Monday night from a residence in Burbank. None of the weapons was locked up.
Burglars entered the home, located on Via Montana street, through an unlocked kitchen window, according to Burbank Police Sergeant Darin Ryburn. “What burglars look for is open access,” said Ryburn.
Ryburn requested that anyone having information about the theft call Burbank police at (818) 238-3210.

The first Santa Ana winds are due to whip up today and tomorrow here in Los Angeles. We know this as “fire season”. Fires start and then are spread by these strong winds. As part of our preparedness for this season we have to look at whether we should be getting fire safes. If you are confused with fire ratings on any type of safe, we have just added an article to our site about ratings for fire safes. You might want to read it along with the article on How to Buy a Safe. The only way to make an intelligent decision is to do your homework.
Fire Safes just for fire season?
Even if you are not in a high fire danger zone, you need a fire safe. Fire can happen wherever there is fuel and a way for it to start. That means as long as you live in a wood structure, have furniture that contains wood, or any other combustible material, and you use a gas water heater, gas stove or gas heater, you have the ingredients needed to have a fire. Don’t wait until it is too late and you have lost all your valuables in a fire. You can protect your important documents, photos, weapons, collectibles and anything that is valuable to you with a fire safe.
We hope these are helpful articles and will give you the information you need to make an intelligent decision on the type of safe you need to buy. If you have any questions give our safe consultants a call at (818) 997-1234 or (805) 526-5443
