Description of Xiaomi Mi Smart Safe Box (BGX-5/X1-3001)

Xiaomi Mijia Smart Safe Deposit Box is a new electronic safe deposit box developed by Xiaomi. The device has a small size, so it can easily fit into the living space. The inner frame of the safe is made of reliable shock-resistant material, and the control unit and the lock itself are made of 65 Mn steel, which is often used in the construction of ships or bridges. You can store small valuable items or important papers for you, the safe will reliably protect the contents and in the event of a break-in or drilling of the mechanism, it will immediately notify its owner. 6 ways to open The manufacturer offers several ways to unlock the safe for the owner''s choice. The device can be opened with a Bluetooth connection, a key, a one-time or permanent password, a fingerprint, and two-step verification. The latter method implies the simultaneous operation of several presented options. For example, scanning a fingerprint and entering a password. Such a system will significantly improve privacy and increase the level of safety of your belongings. Support for 20-bit password The classic way to open a safe is to enter a password. You can enter a few numbers or come up with a complex combination up to 20 bits long. You can unlock the device not only for you, but also for your close friends or relatives, in case of your absence. To do this, you must send a temporary code that allows you to open the safe once. This can be done remotely by installing a proprietary mobile application. Enhanced security The device is equipped with multiple protections to keep your belongings safe. By synchronizing your device with the mobile app, you will be able to receive notifications regarding the status of the device, as well as alerts in case of hacking or theft. In addition, the new version has a "virtual password" option. Its essence lies in the fact that you can enter a real password before or after entering random false numbers. In the case of surveillance, a potential attacker will not be able to guess which numbers are true and which are just an imitation. Level C lock The Xiaomi Mijia Smart Safe Deposit Box has a secure class C lock. According to another classification, this level corresponds to the third class of protection standard. In the event of severe damage to the case or tampering with the keypad, the lock mechanism maintains the lock and protects the contents from potential theft. Data sheet

I like the product, the quality didn't let me down.

Its pros: Comfortable. It can be opened both through a code, a key, biometrics. Stylish. Xiaomi is at its best in this regard. Mount included. With its cons: There is no 2022 instruction. Through the application is added only when selecting the Chinese region. There is doubt about the reliability.

There are disadvantages, but the product is usable.

It must be understood that this is still not a safe, but a metal box with thin walls without a burglary resistance class, it is opened easily . Therefore, it does not cope with the main function. If burglary resistance is not in the first place - you can buy it, but at least screw it to the wall, otherwise they will take it away))

Not everything is so bad, the average purchase in quality.

There were no problems installing the software, it was only necessary to switch to China. It turned out to be light, about 7 kg., Therefore, it is necessary to screw it to a vertical or horizontal surface, since there are technological holes and fasteners. The surface of the safe is matte rough, I don’t know how the dust on it will be noticeable. Its pros: Stylish design. No numbers are visible on the front panel (they turn on with a light touch) or a keyhole (you need to press on the lid)…
