The Pillar has a Kensington Click Safe Anchor built into its base that allows it to be secured with a Kensington Cable lock. This cable lock can fasten The Pillar to a table leg, bed post, or other heavy item and keep it from being removed from its place.
The Pillar is made from very durable ABS plastic that cannot be easily broken. This material is very strong, but several blows from a heavy duty sledge hammer could potentially smash it open. The Pillar is designed to keep others (like your roommates, kids, friends, etc.) out of your personal stuff, not for securing high value items like large sums of cash, precious metals or stones, etc.
Safes are bulky and difficult to hide. The Pillar is sleek, small, and modern. It can be hidden anywhere, even when in plain sight, as it doesn’t draw attention. Not to mention, safes use combinations, a PIN, or a key. The Pillar is designed to unlock only to your voice or with our iOS/Android app. Access can be shared with others, but only with your authorization, and can be revoked at any time. So forget those PINs and throw away those keys!
The battery will operate the Pillar for 4 to 6 hours if the Pillar is turned ON the entire time. The battery life can be significantly extended by turning the Pillar OFF once it has been opened and just turning it back on when you need to open it again.
Yes, The Pillar can only connect to 2.4 GHz WiFi. You will need secure WiFi access to register your device. It cannot be registered with public wifi (ex. restaurant or hotel free wifi).
There is a fail safe method for opening the Pillar using a master password that is unique to each and every Pillar. The master password is provided to the owner upon initial registration. All that is required is a smart device, the master password and The Pillar.
