Finally, a Biometric Safe That Doesn't Suck - Verifi Smart Safe S6000 Review

  • Published: 23 February 2018
  • If you''ve been in the market for a sub $400 biometric safe solution you're probably aware the choices aren't great. The majority of biometric safes in that price range have fingerprint readers that don't work! The Verif S6000 performs FLAWLESSLY, i can't say enough good things about it.

      Thank you for this review. I don't know why safe manufacturers in general have such a tough time designing fingerprint bio-metric readers. Reliable "tap" fingerprint readers (the kind that just needs a tap instead of swiping) have been available on phones for I think close to 4 years now. Yet, even expensive high end safes such as Vaultek still can't seem to get it right. For a gun safe, I need fast and reliable access each and every time. I was so close to buying a Vaultek but can't quite pull the trigger on it because of the fingerprint reader. I do like that this safe has an indication for un-authorize access attempts. My daughter is still a baby right now, but this un-authorize alert will come in handy later on. It will tell me every time I need to have a sit down and talk with her about gun safety.

        These can be purchased on Pretty reasonable prices. I also like that Costco will return anything for any reason. So I feel great purchasing from them. I will be purchasing the S4000 to hold my pistols.

          Hi Dave,

          Thanks for the review! Great video and great points discussed; you covered many features that we spent a lot of time developing and feel are very important. I would like to point out that in an emergency situation, you can reduce the time it takes to open the safe to about 2 seconds by placing your finger on the sensor and pressing the "start" button at the same time.

          We're here to help if you run into any issues with the safe at all or have any questions about its features. Feel free to give us a call or e-mail any time.

            Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely keep that in mind though I hope I'll never need to open it that quickly!

          So anyone without authorized fingerprint can open the safe by removing the screws?

            I think I read on the Costco write up that it weighs 31 lbs.

            I didn't weigh it but I'm sure the manufacturer posts the information on their website

          Hơw long does the battery last? How often do you have to change it?

            I haven't had mine all that long, but I've heard stories of a year or more. It has a battery level indicator so you can check it periodically and not have any nasty surprises

          Thanks for review. After seeing this I cancelled my order for another biometric safe in favor of this one. Took 5 minutes from unboxing to complete setup. Very nice!
