Hey Janq! Fingerprint quick-access gunsafe. $399

http://www.sequiam.com/products/biovault/

Crappy video: http://www.sequiam.com/downloads/BIOV2.mov



• Access control at the touch of a finger
• Store up to 50 authorized fingerprints
• Fingerprint recognition takes less than a second
• Full digital LCD display user interface
• Constructed of heavy-duty materials
• Soft spring-loaded doors feature low profile access
• NRA official Biometric gun safety device
• Endorsed by NRA firearms safety instruction program
• Dimensions: 12.5” Wide, 17.75 ” Long and 6” Deep

BioVault 2.0 is the ultimate solution for access control. Invented and developed by Sequiam, BioVault 2.0 provides safe storage and easily controlled access for handguns, weapons, ammunition, jewelry and other valuable items including: pharmaceuticals, coins, stamps, stocks, bonds, critical data and personal documents.

BioVault 2.0 uses proprietary fingerprint technology to verify identification and permit access. BioVault 2.0 is easily programmable and can store up to 50 authorized fingerprints in its flash memory. Only you decide who gains access to BioVault 2.0. BioVault 2.0 patent-pending technology is the culmination of over 20 years of biometric development. BioVault 2.0 requires no external computer or power to function, no key or card to provide override.

The BioVault 2.0 power management system allows 3 common household D-cell batteries to last up to one year under normal use. An auxiliary AC/DC adapter conveniently plugs into an electrical outlet to provide an alternate source of power. Flash memory retains fingerprint data even during complete battery or electrical failure.
This looks like a faster solution than Gunvault and the Mossberg gunsafe. MSRP is $399. NRA members get $50 off.

fingerprint security is the lamest shit on the planet. their is no 'good' fingerprint device. regardless of price.

now, if your simply looking for a box that your kids cant get into, fine. if your looking for something that will actually thwart a criminal after your firearm, get something else.

Fuzz,

I've seen that one before via the NRA store but thanks for the effort.
The cost is higher than I'd like to spend. It should run $199 or less to be commercially sensible, if not viable, considering it is not fireresistant, not water resistant, and for the price is not even nearly as secure as a gun vault at the same price point from my local Dicks.

BTW thanks for posting as you remind me that I need to get back to you on stuff.
Give me a few minutes to that end...

- Janq

NN,

Yep, I'm looking at it as a child safety device for a gun or two and ancillaries. It would also be good for cops in a police station or jail where you might have to stash your gun in prisoner contact situations, although you'd have to make sure the right people were programmed into the scanner.

Janq,

I'll be in your zone next Saturday. Aluminum briefcase. UMass Library reference desk. 2345 Zulu. The falcon walks alone.

i dont know about the jail scenario. how hard is it to take the thumb off a guard you have already killed? or how about just dragging his uncontentious body? only the BEST fingerprint scanners actually require body heat for the print to work corectly.

Yep, I'm a mod here...have been for some time now. :p

One day I was Joe Blow and then the next day I wake up to find a PM indicating I have the powa of Greystoke!
Generally I roll low key with it and use the abilities sparingly.

Anyway that Saturday (4/21) I'm already booked as I'll be attending pt. 2 of an all day seminar I've been involved in toward museums & historical societies. It's an all day event running morning to late evening.
Sorry mang but I can't blow it off for political reasons (I'd look like an ass) and I was sponsored in to participate as others are depending on me to suck up knowledge in order to turn around and show/advise others toward same. I've even reschedlued the Map, Compass & Survival course I was scheduled, and very much looking forward to, to take on that same day to the next open class (6/23!) so that I can make and complete this seminar.

Of course I'd otherwise be down for a root beer.
Will you be around maybe Saturday night like after I get everyone to bed and what not? I was planning to go see Shooter and if there is time maybe play some pool or something afterward.
Anyway I'll try to buzz or write you this evening if not tonight to chat more.
