Keypad Upgrades Every Safe Owner Should Consider

Is there such a thing astoo much security? Probably. But for the majority of people who want to protect their valuables, there’s always room to improve. If you’re looking to enhance your safe security level, add extra convenience or simply improve your peace of mind, a keypad upgrade could be just what you need.


There are three main types ofupgraded safe keypads: top lit, back lit, and LCD screen. Let's discuss some of their benefits and differences.



Top-Lit Keypads


Some of the key benefits of top-lit keypads are convenience and an accessible battery (which is more beneficial than you might think). These types of keypads are convenient because they allow you to quickly set up a code that only you know. The battery is also easier to change than other keypad options. Other benefits oftop-lit keypads can include:


  • Multiple code management
  • Easy-access, single battery operation
  • Lockout and programming functions
  • Durable construction with premium finishes
  • Easy-to-view keys thanks to a top light

Back-Lit Keypads


Another keypad option is the back-lit keypad. These keypads offer more visibility than top-lit keypads due to the light being behind the keys instead of projecting from above. There also tend to be more colors available with back-lit keypads than other options and they are also easy to program with multiple codes and maintain. Other benefits ofback-lit keypads include:


  • Extended battery life
  • Lockout and programming functions
  • Easy battery replacements and resets
  • Available in multiple finishes

LCD Screen Keypads


The final keypad upgrade option we’ll cover today is the LCD screen. These are the most technologically advanced option and there are a wide variety of different types (with different functions and technology levels). These keypads are easy to understand and program, making them user friendly even for those not typically comfortable with new technology. Here are some other benefits ofLCD screen keypads:


  • Multiple manager and user codes
  • Easy programming and battery replacement
  • Sturdy housing
  • Professional look with an easy-to-read backlit LCD screen
  • Time delay options and other features
