I have a holiday lettings business and I have this key safe on a few of our properties. I think it's the best available. The black cover makes it unobtrusive, the casual observer doesn't see the key pad. I don't like the key safes with the little tumblers that you roll to reveal the code. People forget to jumble the numbers again and the code is left for all to see, key pads are much better. I did a lot of looking and bought a couple of key safes that didn't really do the job, they were either fiddly or not sufficiently secure, waste of money. I recommend the Sentinel with confidence, it is the best I've found.

This is the second one of these I have bought. The first has been in operation in a reasonably-exposed seaside location for a couple of years, and has performed well. The new one is for elderly friends. You can choose how long the code is (you can't repeat the numbers, though, and the order you enter them is irrelevant). The most secure is to have a five-digit code. You need to enter the code to lock the safe again. I initially thought this was annoying, but actually it makes sure you know the code, and have set it up properly!

The Sentinel Key Safe was bought for a village hall to replace another one that had four rotating number wheels, as some people had difficulty seeing and setting the fiddly little numbers. The Sentinel certainly solves that problem as the numbers are clear and the push buttons very simple to operate. Once the correct code is entered, the catch is operated with minimum force and front door drops down to give access to the inside. The Sentinel is as robust as any I have seen and more robust that some.

Now for the negatives. The setting tool, used to set up the access code, is a flimsy bit of perspex which is next to useless. Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver instead. Why the manufacturers can't provide one, even a cheap plastic thing moulded in ABS, I don't know. Even worse, the front cover is extremely flimsy and arrived damaged. It has two thin plastic ears forming the hinge and one of these was already snapped before I opened the pack. However, as the safe was being used indoors, I just threw the cover away.

The comments made by others, regarding the fact that the access code numbers can be entered in any order, are valid. This means that the safe is probably not suitable for situations requiring a high degree of security as it is much simpler for someone to try every possible combination in order to open the safe. A four number wheel type of key safe, with ten digits per wheel, has 10000 different combinations to try. But because the numbers in the sentinel can be entered in any order, there are only 2047 - and even this allows for the fact that the combination can be of any length from 1 to 11 digits. If only four digits are used (and the person trying to crack the code knows this), then it would take only 330 tries.

Excellent product: highly recommended.

As others have commented, the order in which you enter the numbers doesn't matter, so if you choose 1234 then entering 2341 or 3412 or 4312 all open the safe. This is less secure than a 4-digit tumbler type, where the numbers must be set in the right order, however this is more than offset by being able to set any number of numbers (up to 11; 0-9 plus *) as the code (also, I've found the tumbler type to be very fiddly to use: push-buttons are much much easier).

So you can set 123456 as the code (not recommended!), or 482739, or 4835* - the lessened security of the numbers not having to be entered in order is more than offset by the fact that any thief has no idea how many numbers he has to enter.

Note that 121314 actually uses 4 numbers since repeated numbers are not counted: entering 1234 will open that code.

4 different numbers (an normal PIN, with no repeated numbers) gives reasonable security; statistically 5 or 6 non-repeated numbers gives the best security, since that is half the available numbers.

The space for keys is the largest I've seen and is more than adequate for a large bunch of keys, including long ones (up to 100mm long).

The build quality is solid: as with all wall-mounted key-safes, it could be crowbarred off the wall then the back levered off or hammered in (it is secured by rivets, not screws), but that would take considerable effort and attract attention.

I've bought a number of key-safes: this is the best so far.

This product is very robust but it has a major design fault. When you enter your chosen security code it doesn't have to be entered in the correct order to open it,for example if you choose 1234 as your code it can be entered as 2431 or any combination of 1234.Thus making it not as secure.

We've been using a keybox with rotary dials for a few years, which worked well but was a bit of a drama if you needed to use it in the dark. This box is a bit less secure (because the buttons can be pressed in any order), but that still gives a lot of combinations and the ease of use more than makes up for it. Recommended.

At first I thought there wasn't a hook to hang keys. It's hidden at the top. If you don't use it, keys left on the floor of the box will prevent the door from closing. It is well made and the code setting is easy. It doesn't matter what order you press the buttons, so you should use patterns like crosses or all corners etc. Equally pressing the same number more than once makes no difference. The biggest gripe I have is that you have to enter your combination to close the door as well as open it. This is a nuisance. It would have been simpler to have a sprung catch that reset the lock every time the door is closed. The instructions were largely gibberish as normal and didn't mention the reset switch on the bottom row of keys (if you make a mistake, you pull it down to start again).
