Today I saw a listing and was stopped in my tracks by two silver built-in boxes in the walls. After seeing the first one in a room off the master bedroom I assumed it was a safe, then saw another at the top of the basement stairs. I didn’t immediately realize what they were for, and am still not totally sure, but at least I know what they are. They are Secure Logic wall vaults. They come with either a keypad or biometric feature which reads your fingerprint, and cost $399 & $479 respectively. The doors are recessed and gravity operated so there is no swinging out. The doors open in less than two seconds giving you instant access to your valueables or guns…which I’m thinking is what the ones I saw today were used for. The vaults were tested by the US Dept of Justice and deemed safe to store a loaded firearm.

What I liked about them and what got my attention was how sleek they were and how flush they were with the wall. Not that you want to show off a safe, but if you need your stuff quickly, this is a great option.
