Secure Protection Across Industries

Texas Safe & Lock - Amsec Drop Double Door Deposit Safe

Today we live in world that can't wait in purchasing security products in a variety of forms. The past history of our nation as far as security is concerned, has changed. We have all become more conscience of the need for special products to be put in place to prevent home invation, business robbery, and online purchases and hacking. We no longer have the luxury of waiting to put things in place that deter crime. Security has so many meanings, but in the industry of safes and locks, a time delay locks could make the difference between a robbery taking place and not. We are talking about time delay combination locks for your home or business and other varieties of safe options.

Time Delay Locks:

We understand that a time-delay combination lock is most commonly a digital, electronic combination lock in the market out there. Various manufacturers present state of the art locks and safes that com equipped with a delay timer that delays the unlocking of the lock by a user definable delay period. These can usually be less than one hour.

Unlike the time lock, which unlocks at a preset time (as in the case of a bank vault),  a time-delay locks operate each time the safe is unlocked. The operator must wait for the set delay period to elapse before the lock can be opened. These types of time delay safes are most commonly used in businesses with high cash transactions like pharmacies, pawn shops, convenience stores, and banks in highly visable public locations and the like. They can also be used in banks like Nationwide, HSBC and Halifax.

In the world of security, a time-delay combination lock is frequently incorporated into money safes as an armed robbery deterrent. Time-delay combination locks are also equipped with a duress code which may be entered to activate the time delay whilst sending a silent alarm to a monitoring centre.

Form and function of a modern time delay combination lock has many uses such as multiple different codes, pre-set time lock settings (open and close times), pre-set vacation times (e.g. Christmas Day), dual code facility, and a full audit trail providing a detailed record of the lock history showing who opened the lock, when and how long it was open.

These products also use a non-volatile memory so that no information is lost if the batteries go flat. This will allow the safe to be opened when the batteries are changed after the pre-set time if the correct code is entered. Some electronic combination locks with a time-delay feature require the code to be entered twice: once to start the timer, and a second to unlock and open the safe entered after the delay period has expired.
