Previous considerations: ARFE safes
The safes designed by ARFE are high quality safe products. The manufacturer puts all its effort into creating devices that meet all the characteristics and needs of their customers. Although their systems are digital, they are really simple to use, which makes correct use much easier both at home and in business. But, despite seeming to be simple systems; its internal composition is much more complex than you can imagine.
The complexity of the internal mechanism of the safe, is the main reason why when trying to open the safe using invasive methods, the owner can’t open it. These boxes have key locks or mechanical combinations, so to open them, the safest and fastest option is request technical service assistance of ARFE.
On the other hand, when the problem is not the forgetting of the password, but a malfunction of the safe; it can be much more complicated to fix. This type of problem occurs more frequently in ARFE safes that have electronic combination lock; in which the battery that powers the device can be depleted.
In the event that the safe has run out of battery and you are unable to enter the combination, because the numeric keypad does not emit signals; you don’t have to be overwhelmed. Most of these safes have a system through which the owner can access the content of the same from manual way.
In this type of situation, there are three different cases; which can be:
CASE 1. Using a security key: ARFE safes generally have a security key that allows it to be opened in these types of situations. The device fulfills the function of allowing the user access to the contents of the safe; so these keys are usually extremely beneficial and allow you to safeguard the content that is protected.
This is a security measure with which, if something like battery depletion occurs, the box can continue to be used without any inconvenience. The only problem with security keys is that if the key were to be lost, the integrity of the safe and its contents would be compromised.
Despite the above dilemma, it is best to ask the manufacturer to add a security key. This must be protected at all times and kept in a different location than where the safe is located.
CASE 2. External keyboard for the lock: In the event that the battery supplies power to the lock and it runs out, we will proceed to change it. This model of boxes has a hidden slot, in which we can change the batteries that power the keyboard through the control panel.
This method is less risky than the security key; because the owner can change the batteries whenever necessary, without compromising the integrity of the box. Thanks to this added security, it is the method most used in safes.
A curious fact is that the electronic panel is removable, so it can be separated from the box to facilitate changing the battery. The procedure to remove it is quite simple and if you have any questions, you can always consult the user manual provided by ARFE.
CASE 3. External connector for the electronic lock: Most ARFE safes have an external connector that allows the battery to be charged without having to remove the electronic panel. This is the method most used by users; since thanks to it it is not necessary to disassemble anything, nor to complicate a lot by changing the battery.
In general, the connector is located next to the door of the safe and to supply the power, it does so through a second battery that is entirely external.
