#1-3 Paragon Wall Safes (7700, 7750 & 7725)
Paragon is a manufacturer that has produced many in-wall safes over the years. Today, in 2017, they got three in-wall safes that they are promoting.
The Paragon 7700, 7750, and 7725.
What you will find out in the comparison table below is that they are extremely similar. However, they have different dimensions and a slightly different design to one another.
|11Ga steel||11Ga steel||11Ga steel|
|22″ x 16 1/4″ x 4″||22″ x 16 1/4″ x 4″||22″ x 16 1/2″ x 4″|
|0.83 cubic feet||0.83 cubic feet||0.83 cubic feet|
|39 lbs||39 lbs||39 lbs|
|Electronic lock||Electronic lock||Electronic lock|
|Flush Mounting||Flush Mounting||Flush Mounting|
As you can see, these Paragon in-wall safes feature more or less the same things. The Paragon 7700, however, is flatter, which makes it perfect to conceal behind a painting or a mirror.
The Paragon 7750 and the 7725, on the other hand, have a console that sticks out about .5″, which makes it better for closets.
#4 Yescom 0.8CF Keyless Recessed Flat Electronic Wall Hidden Safe Large Jewelry Gun Security White
Yescom offers a fantastic and slightly cheaper alternative to the Paragon in-wall safes. It may offer less space, BUT the door is made of 7 gauge thick steel in comparison to Paragon’s 11 gauge.
Why is this important? Well, most burglars attack the door with various prying tools. The thicker steel door you have, the better security against these type of attacks you will have.
The door is also recessed with internal hinges and reinforced by two steel locking bolts. Breaking into this safe with prying tools will be a difficult task for the common burglar.
What if someone tries to brute-force your password? Don’t worry, the electronic lock on this Yescom in-wall safe will block access after 3 incorrect password attempts.
Last but not least, you will get two backup keys, mounting hardware, and a manual.
#5 Giantex Electronic Wall Hidden Safe Security Box,.83 CF Built-In Wall Electronic Flat Security Safety Cabinet
Next up, we have the Giantex Electronic Wall Hidden Safe Security Box. What’s nice about this in-wall safe is that it has a 9 gauge thick steel door. In conjunction with the two steel locking bolts and the internal hinges, it offers a solid defense against pry attacks.
The locking mechanism consists of a simple electronic lock with a numeric keypad and a turning knob. It also has a neat security feature that will prevent access after 3 incorrect attempts.
Just like the Paragon in-wall safes, it offers an interior space of .83 cubic feet. The interior is also equipped with two shelves and a bottom carpet.
Additionally, you will get 2 backup keys, mounting hardware, batteries, and instructions.

#1 AMSEC WFS149 Wall Safe
The home in-wall safes are great but they are more appropriate for household stuff. If you want to store a gun or something a little bit more dangerous, you need something more secure. Unless you want your gun in someone else’s hands that is.

For a starter, it has a 3/8″ gauge thick, recessed steel door, reinforced with anti-pry brackets.
This is a fairly small but compact in-wall safe with an interior space of 0.19 cubic feet. However, most of this space is available due to the SIMPLEX push button lock. Unlike in-wall safes that has an electronic lock that consumes up to 1/3 of the interior.
The SIMPLEX push button lock is mechanical and doesn’t need any batteries. It has five buttons which give you 1081 combinations to choose from.
