INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- The GunBox represents a great leap forward in safe, secure gun storage. The company today announced from the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits (booth #6950) that it has launched The GunBox version 2.0, which includes new features to further enhance secure storage and rapid access to a handgun.
Deciding where and how to store a gun is critical. Responsible gun owners want quick access to their firearm, but also demand security so those who should not have it, particularly children, cannot gain access. The ideal solution is a lockbox that offers both security and quick access. Historically, finding a product that offers both has been a challenge -- until now. The GunBox is a sleek, high tech firearm storage box that offers the best of both worlds. It is made from aircraft strength aluminum alloy. Instead of an unwieldy key or combination lock, it offers a biometric fingerprint scanner and RFID scanner read through a wristband, RFID sticker, and now a ring that allows secure, yet quick access to the gun inside.
New features include:
- A bidirectional locking mechanism to resist shock
- New RF ring access capabilities (customized rings with an RFID chip embedded)
- Additional options for mounting The GunBox in any orientation such as upside-down below a desk or shelf, or vertically behind a nightstand.
"The GunBox is designed to defend our freedoms and to help protect our children," said Ryan Hyde, CEO of The GunBox. "We have added several new features to further ensure the security, safety and functionality of the product. The GunBox has been rigorously tested to be the best solution available today. It is designed to be tough, yet fit with anyone's style. Simply put, The GunBox removes any objections a person may have to owning a firearm."
Other features include:
- 360 Biometric fingerprint scanner (holds multiple fingerprints)
- RFID scanner
- Aircraft strength aluminum alloy shell
- Internal motion/vibration sensor with audible alarm
- Two USB ports for charging devices or connecting accessories
- Battery backup with shut off switch
- Kensington lock port (lock and cable not included)
The GunBox offers three versions: 1) RF, which provides access through the RFID bracelet, sticker or ring, 2) Biometric adds an additional layer of security with biometric fingerprint technology to open the GunBox, and 3) Premier adds GPS tracking and 24/7 monitoring, tracking and alert notifications (with a yearly subscription fee.)
"We will be demonstrating The GunBox and its exciting new features at the NRA show," Hyde added. "We will also be accepting applications for new dealers nationally and internationally as we have experienced demand around the world for this product."
