New for 2022 from Hornady, the RAPiD Safe Ready and RAPiD Safe Compact Ready high-tech vaults now come with W-iFi enabled, allowing owners to receive instant notifications of unauthorized access on their mobiles through the Hornady Security App
Technology evolves rapidly, even in relatively unsuspected fields such as gun safes. An example? The well-known Hornady RAPiD Safe Ready Vault and RAPiD Safe Compact Ready Vault, some of the world's first to feature a cutting-edge RFID-based opening system, have been upgraded for 2022 with WiFi technology to allow remote status monitoring.
The Hornady Hornady RAPiD Safe Ready Vaults and Safe Compact Ready Vault are all built on a heavy-duty steel housing, and feature five hardened locking lugs for confident protection of valuables. A set of pre-drilled mounting holes allows additional security.
The RAPiD vaults feature a unique digital lock, faster than most keypads and biometrics. Four included RFID tags can be selectively programmed to open this safe and any other RAPiD safes. RFID technology allows instant access with tags that are programmed specifically for each safe. RFID tags include watchbands, key fobs, and decals.
The tag for the watchband is located in the buckle for easy use. The decals can be adhered to plastic, glass, metal, wood – nearly any surface. Many people choose to adhere them to their mobile phone.
The lock is powered through a standard AC outlet and features an embedded battery to provide access even in case of a blackout. In case of emergencies, the Hornady RAPiD Safe Ready Vault and Safe Compact Ready Vault can be opened through their programmable keypads, and are issued with standard mechanical keys so that their contents can still be accessed even when everything else fails.
The new entries in the line, launched in early 2022, are WiFi enabled so that their owners can monitor their status with any smartphone through the Hornady Security App, and receive instant notifications in case of unauthorized access.
The Hornady RAPiD Safe Ready Vault and Safe Compact Ready Vault models all come equipped with a set of SQUARE-LOK interface panels inside the door and at the deep end.
The SQUARE-LOK interface allows the owners to rationalize and easily divide the space within their vault according to their needs and preferences, and to the types and number of firearms they own, through a set of issued spacers, baskets and racks, and others sold separately.
Hornady's SQUARE-LOK interface is also compatible with a full line of accessories manufactured by Hornady and sold separately, such as the cordless LED safe lights, the digital or wireless hygrometers or the rechargeable dehumidifiers and canister dehumidifiers.
As of today, the Hornady Security App can only monitor the lock status of the RAPiD vaults. It is safe to assume, however, that as time passes and technology progresses, Hornady vault owners will also be able to monitor and control most these accessories as well through the same app.
The Hornady RAPiD Safe Ready Vault with WiFi technology is 132cm tall, approximately 50 cm wide and 38,3 cm deep at its exterior (52.2" x 20.0" x 15.1" ). The internal storage space is 131,5 cm tall, appriximately 48 cm wide and 32,2 cm deep ( 51.8" x 19.0" x 12.7"). The entire vault weighs in at 165 lbs (74,84 kg) when empty.
The Hornady RAPiD Safe Compact Ready Vault with WiFi technology is 132 cm tall, 25,4 cm wide and deep (52.2" x 10" x 10"); the interior is 129,5 cm tall, 24,8 cm wide and 20,3 cm deep (51" x 9.8" x 8"), The Safe Compact Ready vault weighs in at 80 lbs (36,2 kilograms).
Both models are small enough to fit into walk-in cabinets, to be crammed into small corners, or to exploit other crannies in a house that would generally be unfit to host anything else.
The Hornady RAPiD Safe Ready Vault with enabled WiFi is sold on the US commercial market at a suggested retail price of $1.026,99; the manufacturer's suggested retail price for the RAPiD Safe Compact Ready Vault is set at $526,99.
