LockState Biometric Gun Safe Review

LockState Biometric Gun Safelockstate biometric gun safe

The LockState Biometric Gun Safe is the only one made by this manufacturer at this time. It is the LockState LS-SC1000 or SafeCase. If you are looking for some extra security for your small hand gun or valuables, this gun safe will be very affordable and more than sufficient.

The SafeCase is relatively small (outside dimensions of about 7.25” x 10.75” x  2”) but provides sufficient storage for handguns, jewelry, personal documents or other small valuables. As would be expected, quick access is possible through their re-designed optical fingerprint reader.

LockState Biometric Gun Safe's Biometric Scanner

The fingerprint reader uses the latest biometric technology to recognize wet, dirty, oily or normal fingerprints. Its recognition memory can store up to 30 fingerprints so many people can have access to the valuables if you so desire. The SafeCase is powered by 4 AA batteries that should allow over 1000 openings. In addition, the fingerprint information is not lost when batteries die or are replaced. This gun safe is made completely from steel construction which gives it nearly an impenetrable barrier. Because of its small size, a security cable is included with your purchase so no one can simply walk off with it.

Fire Proof It Is Not!
The SafeCase Biometric gun safe is meant to store your valuables safely. It is not built to withstand a fire and as such is NOT a fire safe.

In Case of Problems
In case you are wondering what to do if the biometrics ever fail – well it comes with an over ride key which is used when you first get the gun safe or it can be used at any other time you wish to open the safe.

How To Open the Fingerprint Safe

After you have your fingerprints programmed into the sensor, opening the fingerprint safe is as simple as 1.) Pushing the start button and 2.) Placing your fingerprint on the sensor pad for 1 or 2 seconds. When your fingerprint is recognized, the SafeCase will beep and the door can be opened.

Some Interesting Questions about the LockState Biometric Gun Safe

Will the biometrics recognize my finger after swimming or if it has a cut on it?

Yes it should. The moisture in your finger may change your fingerprint slightly. This may require you to enter it a couple of times.

If your finger has a cut on it, the same would apply as above. It should recognize it but it may take you a couple of times. If you have stitches, you may need to re-enter your finger print into its biometrics memory or use a different finger.

If your finger gets cut off, can someone else use it to access the SafeCase?

No, the biometric safe uses a sensitive biometric sensor that requires the finger to be attached.

Are LockState and Sequiam the Same?

While the author cannot prove this beyond a shadow of doubt, research shows that this LockState was formerly made by Sequiam and was marketed under the BioBox name. As proof, compare a photo of the LockState biometric gun safe with the Sequiam biometric gun safe and they should look identical except for the logo on them.
