The digital safe lock can be enriched with magnetic function and even an electric system with just 9v of power. These safe locks are available in various designs and styles.

Advantages of digital lock over the dial lock system
The digital locks are very easy to use. The digital keypad of the locks can be operated with a mere press of the correct button on the lock required to unlock the safe doors whereas the steps involved in operating a combination dial lock is a little bit confusing and difficult to understand. The numbers are also minuscule and very hard to read.
The Group II of the digital safe locks is highly secure for the doors. As a matter of fact, the advanced features of the digital safe lock make it possible to utilize all the possible combinations (that is close to a hundred thousand) to lock and unlock the door whereas the combination dial lock system has limited combinations which is because of the increased number of dead zones present in them. The dead zones in the lock system are nothing but the combination of numbers that is not or can’t be utilized while unlocking. For example, dead zone occurs when the set of numbers used in the combinations belongs to the same set and appear in a sequence like 1, 2, 3 etc. One more such example of the limitation in the combination is there is also a restriction when the third number of a set or combination falls under the number 10. All these could cause the dial to lock one of the numbers in the set and simultaneously unlock the other number completely.
The digital safe locks are equipped with advanced features wherein the user can set the combination of his or her choice “n” number of times at literally no extra charge. The owner also has the luxury of changing the existing combination as per his or her choice. This kind of a programming ability is absent in the dial lock system. Moreover, the combination dial locks need certifications if the combination is to be changed and each combination change might cost the owner up to $150 every time it is done.
Disadvantages of the digital lock
The digital safe locks work on batteries that have to be replaced very often. The changing process may be a bit frustrating from the user’s point of view whereas in the case of a combination lock, the batteries are located only outside the system and it doesn’t take more than a couple of minutes to replace them.
Another disadvantage of the digital lock over the combination dial up lock is that, the former is more prone to water damages. The digital programming will get affected instantly if water is spilt on any of the electronic components of the digital safe lock.
