The Depository Safe 1 with Safegard Time Delay Lock is a favorite drop safe used by businesses with a high risk of hold ups such as convenience stores. The Safegard Electronic lock is an upgrade from the LG Basic II electronic lock because it also supports:
Time Delay. With this option enabled, when you first enter the code the lock enters a waiting mode which lasts the amount of time specified when the lock was programmed. The safe does not open, to open the safe, when the delay period has elapsed, you have to enter the code again, during the open period which is explained next. The time delay can be set from 1 to 99 minutes.
Open Period. If Time delay is enabled, this option has to be programmed. The open period is the amount of time you are given an opportunity to enter the code a second time to actually open the safe after the time delay period described above has elapsed. If you fail to enter the code again during the open period the safe remains closed and you have to start over again. The open period can be set from 1 to 19 minutes.
Time Delay Override. This function requires that time delay is enabled. If it is enabled, the second code opens the lock right away. If time delay override is enabled, dual custody cannot be enabled: the two features are mutually exclusive.
Dual Custody. This feature can be enabled only if time delay override is NOT enabled. When this feature is enabled, both the first and the second code have to be entered before the lock opens. You can enable both time delay and dual custody.

If you are looking for a time lock safe, any safe that can be equipped with a standard electronic lock will be compatible. The key is to select an electronic lock with a time lock feature, which is different from time delay lock: A time lock lets you specify the schedule when the safe will open, thus offering a much greater level of control.
