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.
