A residential safe is often designed for long-term storage of valuable items, unlike commercial ones that are often designed to be emptied overnight.
For a residential safe it’s important to consider the kind of items you’re likely to store in your home safe. That’s why there is a wide range of safe types and features for residential use.
Home safes are usually designed to be floor- or wall-mounted to help prevent burglary. They also include a locking mechanism, which can be a keypad code, a combination lock, or a standard key. Professional locksmiths can also open residential safes in an emergency, including helping you change the locking mechanism for less than the cost of a new safe.
Residential safes are also typically lightweight and smaller than commercial ones. However, it can still take special tools and equipment to move them.
