Sargent and Greenleaf, a division of Stanley Security, brings a new lock known as the AxisBlu to gun owners looking to introduce a little technology into their gun storage.
AxisBlu utilizes Bluetooth and a mobile app to remove the need for keyed entry into gun safes. Paired with S&G’s lock components, the AxisBlu is easy-to-install according to S&G. Featuring an “unobtrusive” medallion, the system connects through Bluetooth to user’s smart devices via an app that grants remote access to the safe. The system offers a 30-foot radius and has the ability to pair with up to five smart devices.
S&G says the AxisBlu provides multiple layers of authentication to protect safe contents from unauthorized individuals. The AxisBlu system is available with a keypad to grant access manually or through the app. The AxisBlu app is free and compatible with Android and iPhones.
“With AxisBlu, our customers have the best of both convenience and security,” Keith Deaton, COO of Sargent and Greenleaf, said in a news release. “We’ve combined the latest Bluetooth technology with our proven lock body to create a new option for safe security – void of a keypad – by accessing your safe via your mobile app.”
He added, “We hope AxisBlu will help the end user, for example, safely secure their firearms with ease from their mobile device.”
