Considering a security safe for your home but don’t know where to start?

In this article, we’ll be talking about the advantages of residential safes and how the team at Horizons Lock & Key can help.

Advantages of Installing a Safe in Your Home

There are many advantages to installing a safe in your home, but do you know what they are? Here, we’ll go through some of the most popular reasons homeowners install security safes.

Choice & Versatility

You may think that one security safe is just like another, but this is not the case at all. When it comes to safes for the home, there are actually a variety to choose from – depending on basic things such as the size you need, what you’re storing in it, where you’ll be storing it, how it’s accessed and so on.

You can even choose one that opens electronically versus options that open manually.

Store Valuables

It may seem obvious but security safes give you a place to store your valuables – whether it be important documents like your will and passport or expensive jewellery and heirlooms.


Another benefit to installing a safe in the home is that you no longer have to go to the bank or another secure location to access your valuables.

Safety & Peace of Mind

Having a security safe in your home gives you an added layer of security. Even if your home is (unfortunately) broken into, your valuables are still protected as they likely won’t be able to access (or remove) your safe.

Reduced Insurance Premiums & Added Value

In some cases, you may find that the installation of a safe – especially if it’s as safe that can’t be removed – is actually a value add for your property. There is also the potential for reduced insurance premiums, though this obviously depends on your insurer.

Natural Disaster Protection

Natural disasters such as fire and flood are seemingly a fact of life in Queensland homes. But if your home is subjected to these things, your valuables will be protected if they’re in a safe.
