Your collection in a new light
Safes with glass doors with bulletproof glass are like armored display cases for works of art. A solid, steel body and certified locks protect the deposited property against looting. The bulletproof glass installed in the door allows you to freely view the secured collection. In order to emphasize the display in this extraordinary collector's cabinet, it is worth installing internal lighting. LED strips are perfect here.
Three types of LED strips
Currently, we can distinguish three types of LED strips that can be used to illuminate the interior of a safe with a glass in the door. The simplest solution is a LED strip with white diodes with a specific color temperature. It is a strip whose color temperature cannot be changed, so before installation it should be decided whether the white light should be warm, cold or neutral. Installation of RGBW LED strips gives us more options, which allow mixing RGB colors or lighting with white color. The third, most advanced type of strips is RGBWW LED, which enables mixing RGB and white colors. In this case, using a dedicated remote control or smartphone application, you can choose not only any lighting color but also the white light temperature.
Switch like in a refrigerator or controlled by a smartphone
The second of the choices regarding the method of lighting the armored cabinet is how the light is switched on or what it will be changed. The simplest solution will be a switch installed outside the side wall or a mechanical switch which is activated when the door is opened (as in a refrigerator). This option will work when using LED strip lighting with constant white light, which does not require adjustment. RGB LED strips and RGBWW LEDs require more advanced control. In this case, we can use drivers that enable remote switching on and modification of the light using a dedicated remote control or a smartphone, after installing the appropriate application.
The possibility of choosing the type of LED strip and the method of lighting control allow for such configuration of the installation to meet individual customer expectations. One thing is certain - if we decide on a safe with glass, manufactured to our individual order, installing internal lighting in it seems obvious. Only then the collection in our exclusive hobbyist safe will be fully visible to our guests' eyes.
