Finally, a product reviews website that offers fully detailed safe reviews! This is not one of those websites that present the reader with a three paragraph article, a couple of product images and then a ton of “Buy now” buttons!
Nope. At Home Safe Reviews what you get is a full, unbiased review of all the safes featured. You will read about the good and the bad points of all the safes. There are videos, images, star ratings and much more.
Basically, we piled on as much information as possible about all our featured safes so as you can get the best information possible. Buying a safe needs some advance research if you are to choose the right one for your needs.
There is nothing worse than clicking from one website to the other picking up bits of information here and there. A product description on a retail site isn’t enough to tell you the capabilities of any particular model. What you want is all information on one site. Well, that is what you have right here. Well done for finding us!
We started building this site over three years ago and in that time we have created over 80 safe reviews and that does not include all the helpful general articles. It is designed to provide you with everything you need to know about a specific safe; including the pros and the cons. The reviews on this site are crafted with that in mind.
The following is a guide to explain what you will find in the website and the best way to locate the type of safe you are looking for:
There are a number of options on this site to help you locate the right safe. Firstly, take a look at the feature section right above this guide. In that area we usually feature any special offers, deals, bargains, recommended bestsellers, etc. If anything interests you then just click the link and you will be directed to the review page.
Secondly, you might want to look over to the right side-bar and see if there are any recent article posts that may interest you. Whenever a new safe has been reviewed it will show up in that section.
Lastly, there are the tabs right at the top of the website. You can save some time by creating a more specific search. Your options are to “Choose Price”, (how much you plan on spending), “Choose Type”, (the type of safe you are looking for) and “Choose Brand”, (the safe company brand).
There is also the “Compare Home Safes” tab which is great for looking at what all the safes have to offer regarding star ratings, price, type of protection, type of storage, etc and then comparing them all. Essentially it is a compare list.
Next to that tab is the “Home Safes Articles” tab which features a collection of all our general articles on the subject of safes and security.
Below is a more detailed look at the types of safes being reviewed on this site:
Type of Safes
Fireproof Safe Reviews
These are probably the most popular of all our safes on review. Many are bestsellers and have been for a number of years. Within the reviews we go into detail about every safe’s fireproofing capabilities including its official fire test rating and how long it is able to withstand a certain amount of heat in a certain amount of time. The most popular fire safes are the 1 hour fireproof safes which tend to have quite a few other features built in.
Gun Safe Reviews
These range from small in car gun storage to huge long gun safes for the home or office. Gun safes are also hugely popular and come in many shapes and sizes. Some are designed for quick access to your handgun, usually featuring some sort of biometric door release. Others have other forms of digital locking mechanisms or a combination device. If you have children in your home make sure you pick something with high security options.
Diversion Safe Reviews
These are really cool products which are basically everyday items with secret compartments. These were not so popular a few years back but now there is a massive supply of very interesting secret diversion safes. There are books with hidden compartments, stash containers made from soda cans, clocks with secret compartments, shaving bottles, spray cans, electrical sockets, hair brushes and much more.
Biometric Fingerprint Safe Reviews
These are the new technology in safe security. You will find many of these on quick access gun safes but are also available in other forms. These are a great alternative to the standard combination safe or key lock safe. You will never have to worry about remembering a combination code or waste time hunting for a lock key you misplaced. Just place your fingers on the dash and within seconds the door automatically opens.
Small Safe Reviews
All of these are designed for securing much smaller items and many are also lightweight for portability. Some of the more popular small safes are 1 hour fire proofed which is very handy for keeping irreplaceable items free from damage in case of a fire. Most of these are under $100 some even less than $30 but remember if you require more features expect to pay more.
Long Gun Safe Reviews
Basically these are much bigger versions of the standard gun safe. Most are in a similar design to a gun cabinet but offer better security for your guns. They are made with all kinds of materials depending on how much security you require. A high security long gun safe would be made with the best toughened materials and its price would reflect this. You can store rifles, shotguns, automatic guns, handguns, bow and arrows, other large weapons as well as knives and ammo.
Wall Safe Reviews
These are permanent safes designed for being built into a wall. You can put these in yourself but they do require some knowledge of DIY. It is recommended to hire a professional to fit the safe for you though. Wall safes come in various shapes and sizes. Just like in the movies you can have wall safes that are hidden behind a picture whereas some can be hidden away inside a cupboard. Some come with a number of additional features but you would expect to pay more for those models. Having said that, the general prices of wall safes are still fairly reasonable.
These are the types of safes we feature on Home Safe Reviews although we plan to expand the reviews as new styles of safes are released.
So far the safe brands we have featured are chosen because of their popularity and reputation. We also plan on expanding in this area to offer more reviews for other quality brands. The company brands we have reviewed so far are First Alert, Sentry Safe, Honeywell, Barska, Homak, Cannon, Gunvault, Stack-On, SSP and a number of other brands.
Ok, that is all for the introduction guide. I hope this helped, and if you have any questions, please post a comment and we’ll answer it as quickly as we can!
Good luck in your search!
