Electronic safes are technologically advanced products and, therefore,complex. It is therefore only natural that doubts can arise about what could happen in the case of an unexpected event. One of the most common fears is that of no longer being able to open the safe once the batteries are flat.
Also in this case, the difference depends on the quality of the product. A good quality safe warns well in advance when the batteries are running out, so that they can be replaced well before they are completely flat.

And here, sometimes, especially in this age of fast technological development, fascinated by the promise of increasingly advanced products, we forget the main purpose of doors: not to open more easily, but to make us feel secure and to defend our goods, inside our properties.

Christmas holidays has just gone, but some, perhaps, are planning a trip to the USA, or they will simply stop at one of its many airports and then go elsewhere. Amongst the preparations and the information collected for the trip it is important to make sure that what is packed in the suitcase at home arrives intact in the hotel room.
