This is a question that springs into the minds of most people when they think about securing their valuables by a security safe.
But the good news is that you can safeguard yourself against this rare occurrence too, provided you plan for it in advance.
The answer is Time-delay combination locks. Time-delay combination locks are electronic Combination Locks which are equipped with delay timers that delay the unlocking of security safes by a user definable delay period.
Time-delay locks operate each time the safe is unlocked, but the operator must wait for the set delay period to elapse before the lock can be opened. More often than not, burglars are pressed for time. They would rarely cherish the idea of waiting for several minutes or hours for a security safe to open up. So having an advanced electronic combination lock like the LaGuard 66E Electronic Combination built into your security safe is a smart decision.
The other alternative is to manage opening and closing times for a safe actively. This can be achieved using highly advanced combination locks like the LaGuard Electronic Combination lock TL11 which can help you set weekly or daily opening time-locks, audit facility for monitoring open and close activity remotely, master & user codes and remote disabling facilities. In a nutshell, the safe cannot be opened outside dates and times set by the master user. And even if a robbery takes place at an opening time-slot, a time-delay and a code relayed back to the control screen would ensure added layers of safeguarding.
And the fact that almost all combination locks have non-volatile memories means that they would never lose track of the codes and the programmed events even if their batteries run out.
Since most informed burglars would probably be aware of the complexities of electronic combination locks most of them would not try their luck against safes fitted in with advanced combination locks.
