TacticalWalls Now More Tactical with RFID Models

TacticalWalls, known for their discreet yet in-plain-sight firearms storage devices has announced the release of their latest models including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) models. The RFID models will take advantage of a “faster” unlocking mechanism using a standard credit-card sized RFID card.

Of note, the RFID models will add a “Tattle Tale” function to the storage units. In short, the Tattle Tale function will cause a wall to start beeping after the TacticalWall unit has been open for a set time. TacticalWalls claims this will keep guns from unwanted users by reminding users to shut their storage units. For those worried about batteries, the unit will auto default to an unlocked “but-still-closed” position.

The RFID mechanism is offered as a “optional alternative to the existing magnetic lock on select TacticalWalls models.” Those models include:

  • 1450M Bundle – MSRP’s range $630-760
  • 1420M Bundle – MSRP’s range $500-660
  • 825 Pistol Length Shelf (PLS) – MSRP’s range $435-495
  • 812 Pistol Length Shelf (PLS) – MSRP’s range $219-349

For those that tend to lose small parts or want extra, spare cards will be available for purchase from TacticalWalls. The cards will also be able to be programmed to open any RFID TacticalWalls product in a home so a single card can have access to all. Further, various cards can be programmed to only open certain TacticalWalls, denying access to unauthorized cards.

    If they can put the RFID in a wrist watch bracelet they make the access even faster with less risk of misplacing the key.

    I thought we gun folks don’t like RFIDs?

    I have a number of the large sliding mirrors they offer staged around, Can the new locks be retrofitted to the old cabinets/will you sell the locks on there own?

    Yeah depending on the RFID spec they’re using this is an awesome addition. I could use my NFC ring that I always wear to open it. Super cool.
