Barska AX 11556 Biometric Safe Review

Barska Biometric SafeThis is an in-depth Barska Biometric Safe Review covering one of the newer safes produced by  Barska. The top opening safe is slightly smaller than the standard opening biometric fingerprint safe from Barska.

The top opening safe is one of the newer safes on the market at the moment and therefore has some of the best security features. The safe shown in the image is the Barska AX11224. There is also a front opening safe that Barska produce, the AX11556. Both safes use the same type of reliable fingerprint reader.

The safe shown above features the ability to store up to 30 unique fingerprints, this means you can store all your fingers from different angles and also those of others you want to have access to it.


It is advisable to program your fingerprints from different angles to improve recognition. The Barska fingerprint recognition system is usually a bit more reliable than most other brands but it is always good to be sure.

The opening mechanism is hydraulic and unlocks the solid steel locking bolts immediately when a fingerprint is recognized.

This Biometric Safe is well made and from solid steel and so will withstand attempts to break into it very well.  It can also be used in a vehicle as well due to its small size and is pre-drilled with holes that can be used in conjunction with a security cable to make sure it is safe in your car.

One of the good things about Barska being a top brand is that it gives you peace of mind knowing that a safe provided by them will be reliable. Many customers have given 5 star reviews of the Barska Top Opening Biometric Fingerprint Safe saying things such as “This thing works great! Lots of room inside, well built, easy to program fingerprints”

There is a great emphasis on reliability with this safe and the customer reviews reflect that with many people saying that it is indeed one of the more reliable safes they have used.

The safe runs off 4 AA batteries which is pretty standard for a small biometric safe. Emergency release keys are provided just in case the battery runs out and you need access. It is always good to have back up keys for a safe though you have to be sure to keep them secure too.
