If you’re reading TTAG, it’s a pretty safe bet that you have an interest in securing firearms (hopefully more so than Eric Holder). If so, it might be worth your time to take a look at the Lockdown “Smart Puck”.
The Smart Puck (just Puck going forward) is a small sensor box that can be remote monitored from just about anywhere – anywhere you can access an SMS, text message, or e-mail. And, as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, you can keep an eye on everything from temperature and humidity to movement alerts via the Lockdown Logic app.
That makes it a great option for gun safes, humidors, toolboxes, jewelry cabinets, and similar locations.
Here’s a quick overview.
First revealed at SHOT Show 2020, the Lockdown Puck has now been out in the wild long enough to begin generating a “service record” of sorts, and commensurate reviews and opinions. Running off either AA batteries or a USB power adapter, this is how the Puck is described by the manufacturer:
The Lockdown® Puck™ is a state-of-the-art monitoring and security device that provides true peace-of-mind with real-time notifications and control using the Lockdown Logic™ App. Track temperature and humidity, movement, and when something is opened anywhere in the world. Whether you’re securing your vault, front door, or vehicle, with a touch of a button, Lockdown what matters most.
Utilizing state-of-the-art sensors and our proprietary algorithm to detect tampering, the Puck™ will notify you instantly anywhere in the world. The built-in Wi-Fi and Lockdown Logic App connects directly with your smart home and other Lockdown Devices. From protecting guns and ammo to your family heirlooms, you can trust the Lockdown Puck to keep your valuables safe and secure.
The Lockdown Puck ships with the following:
•1 PUCK™ Unit
•1 Nine-foot Micro USB power cord
•1 Magnetic door sensor
•1 Mounting bracket and hardware
•4 AA batteries
With record numbers of Americans buying guns now, it’s ever more incumbent upon more “seasoned” gun owners to help them understand gun safety – and safe gun storage. Like Plano’s “Rustrictor“, the Puck runs about $100 and is worth some consideration.
