Throw Your Valuables In This Wi-Fi-Connected, Motion-Sensing Safe

Throw Your Valuables In This Wifi-Connected, Motion-Sensing Safe

In today's world of constant mass breaches of personal data, fears of spying drones, and nightmarish visions of AI-fuelled robot rebellions, it's nice to know that some new technologies can fall squarely into the category of "wholly secure" -- like this nifty Wi-Fi-connected safe. Security company First Alert is announcing a host of new products at CES yesterday, one of which is this fancy smart safe that can connect remotely to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth via iOS devices, and is unlocked via the company's Onelink Home app with a passcode or Touch ID. It's battery-operated with an accelerometer built in, which lets the safe alert users from the same app if the safe detects shady motion nearby.

The safe, on sale in Q2 of this year and available in 34L and 59L, will sell for $US500 ($708) and up. Australian pricing and availability has yet to be confirmed.

    Hacked in... 3... 2... 1...

    Nothing can ever be wholly secure. It's a nice thought though. I imagine that it won't be long before someone figures out a way to get around its security.

    If it connects to a network, it will eventually be hacked through that network

      I'm sure it also has a back up usb port, for that extra security :P

    I was expecting it to be a normal safe that would alert you via WiFi that it has been tampered with.

    Opening via this option is nuts.
