Lockdown Puck Security Device Review

Lockdown Puck Security Device Review
Lockdown’s Puck includes a mounting bracket, a magnet sensor for detecting open and closed points of entry, and easy access to the unit’s four AA batteries. When armed, the Lockdown logo turns red and can sound an alarm if jarred. Puck also monitors temperature and humidity. $110

How would you like to be notified when someone fiddles with the door to your gun safe? What about when its internal temperature or humidity changes dramatically? Would you ever need to check the history of a vault door being opened? With Lockdown’s Puck, you can.

Lockdown Puck
The Puck comes with a magnetic sensor that can be mounted between any two objects such as doors or windows. When the “secure” status changes, Puck alerts you.

The Puck is a compact monitoring and security device that can be used to safeguard valuables, regardless of where they are stored. Beyond gun safes, the Puck is ideal for monitoring wine cellars, liquor cabinets, humidors and just about anything else with a door.

Lockdown Puck

Here’s how the Puck works: Download the Lockdown Logic app to your phone and set up an account. Then mount and activate the Puck using the supplied magnetic door sensor to whatever door you want to monitor. The back is magnetized for convenient metal-­surface mounting, such as the door a gun safe. Lockdown’s Puck also comes with an aluminum mounting bracket and hardware to affix the device to a wooden door or cabinet. Powered by four AA batteries, or alternatively by a USB cable, the Puck can be easily removed from its bracket to allow access for battery replacement.

Lockdown Puck
Constant power can be supplied by one of two Micro USB cables, or you can run the Puck on four AA batteries, also included.

Once set-­up, a real-­time alert is sent from the Puck to your smartphone whenever the proprietary algorithm detects tampering, movement, or when temperature and humidity levels deviate from the parameters you designated. It also tracks your Wi-­Fi connectivity, battery level and activated alerts. Alerts consist of an audible alarm, as well as a text message sent to your phone that indicates the source, for instance, “Door Opened.” The Puck’s dashboard will display a red background around the activated element with the word “Alert” and blasts an audible alarm so that the person trying to access your valuables knows the jig is up.


Lockdown Puck
The app is highly functional, allowing users to enable alert settings including motion sensitivity, tampering, temperature and humidity.

When it comes to securing valuables, a layered approach is best. This begins with locking the doors and securing the windows to the structure that houses whatever it is you are safeguarding. The monitored audible alarm system provides another layer of security that deters the curious or a would-­be criminal and notifies law enforcement. The Puck adds the final layer of security.


The Puck can work independently or with other security measures. For example, if you’re home with your family and an unauthorized person, such as your untrained child or their friend, tries to access your gun safe or other area they are restricted from, you will be immediately notified. You could also use the Puck to monitor luggage in a hotel room when traveling. Its uses are endless.

The Puck’s $110 retail price shouldn’t be cause for alarm. This is just one logic-­enabled device available from lockdown.com that offers peace of mind.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
