[Staples] Motorola Smart Safe [flex or bolt] • $130 (reg. $180)

Ok, a bit "gimmicky" but could be of interest to some.



What’s Motorola doing in the safe business, you ask? Motorola COO and General Counsel Jeffrey Padilla told us the company first began looking at ways to help the country with its burgeoning opoid problem. As more people became addicted to opoids, they became subject to theft from people who had legitimate reasons to have the drugs in their possession.
It became clear that Dad, while recuperating from chronic pain from a recent traffic accident for which he takes opoid pain killers, needed a way to make sure the younger members of his family weren’t exposed to his prescription. If only he had a quick and easy way to keep his pill bottle in a safe and secure place.

A Safe & Secure Place for Valuables
The Smart Safe is that safe and secure place. An Internet connected, app-enabled, safe that will send you smart notifications on its status. Measuring 6″ h x 12.8″ w x 3.4″ d, it’s small enough to make it easy to find an appropriate space for the safe, but it large enough to hold those valuables you need protected.

The Smart Safe connects to your home’s existing Wi-Fi and offers three ways to gain entry – by key, by coded combination, or by app. There are two versions of Motorola’s Smart Safe – the more permanent Bolt, designed to be screwed to a wall or into a cabinet; and the Flex which comes with clever “wings” that extend out from the body to be wedged into an appropriately sized space and then locked in place.

65% of Burglaries Take Place During the Day

Motorola notes that in 2017, there were more than 7.5 million property crimes reported in the US. Of this total, more than 18% of these crimes were burglaries…and of those, 65% took place between the hours of 6am – 6pm while the homeowners were away at work or school.

A simple to install safe (tool-less in the case of the Flex) would be the ideal place to keep pill bottles, passports, excess cash, keys, jewelry, etc. Not only that, but Smart Safe – when used in conjunction with the available iOS or Android app – will send you notifications if the safe has been tampered with or otherwise opened. It has sensors, including an accelerometer, built-in for motion, vibration, shock, and three-axis tilt detection. Any change in state is immediately sent to your attention via a notification on your smartphone.

24/7 Remote Monitoring and Even Remote Opening
You can monitor your Smart Safe 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Need to give someone temporary access, say for locked up car keys? You can open the Smart Safe with your app remotely. You’ll know when the safe has been opened…and then re-closed.

Made of a tough plastic material, Motorola says Smart Safe is shatter resistant…and if anyone tries to tamper with it…you’ll know right away, so you can alert the appropriate authorities. In addition to homes, the Smart Safe is the perfect solution for apartment dwellers, especially those with roommates. Same with dorm rooms or anywhere you’re in a “shared space.

Another app sitting on your phone used a couple of times per month/year!

So many different apps for each smart device drives me crazy being an app minimalist.

I'd like to see what the Lock Picking Lawyer thinks of this, my past 3 phones have been cheap motorlas, but I never think "Security" when I think motorola.

I had the exact same thought, nothing from lock picking lawyer but the BBC cracked it by punching it. Different branding, but definitely the exact same safe:

Yeah, I def. would not get this as a primary safe, for me all this "smart stuff" is getting out of hand now. Just a super fad to make everything "smart"

Like who asked for a smart kitchen faucet??

How is is a safe? I can pick it up with ease. Then opening it up without the app or code would be simple. Plus the cost? Don’t make me laugh. This is not a hot deal. Much better safes for much better prices. I paid less for something ten times the size and quality.

i can fit my wallet in there with ease.

it’s definitely not a bank vault quality but definitely something to hold things in with protection.
