Can't open my Protocol Home Safe - Electronic Keypad Entry

I have an electronic Protocol Home Safe. There is no model # on the unit. The battery appears to be dead. My code works, but the knob won't turn. I no longer have the key.

How can I open this safe?

    I solved my own problem. Batteries were definitely dying. I must have tried the combination over 100 times in the past week and nothing. So, I blasted it with hot hair from my blow dryer for about 15 minutes. Got the keypad nice and hot. Tried the combination. It opened right up. Whew!

Cannot remember the combination of a safe installed many years ago How can I unlock the safe and reset the combination?


There are many videos on youtube about breaking into safes. My concern is that you said it was installed. If it is placed in a manner that you cannot get to all the sides or the back, then you most likely need to contact a lock smith or destroy it to remove the contents.

How to open a 2087d Honeywell safe if you lost the battery backup


Honeywell no longer sells the battery back up! I made my own by putting 4 AA Batteries in a series, found a USB cable that matches the plug on the safe door and cut the USB end off the wire. Strip the two wires Red and Black and put the red on the positive side and black on negative side plug it into the safe and put the combo in then turn the handle and open the safe. You can make a battery by going to an electronic store and tell them what you are looking for or if you have a toy at home that has 4 AA batteries you can wire it into that Temporarily open your safe and give the toy back to your kids. LOL

How to reset my pass word on my Samsung Security Video System SDH-B74041


For nearly all Samsung Security DVRs, the default password is 4321. If it hasn't been changed since setup, then you can just use that to access the DVR. The default password is included in the reset procedures for completeness. If you have changed your password or access code for your Samsung Security DVR since it was setup, or if you changed it during the initial setup, use that password in place of the default password. The password will be the latest password that was set on the DVR. If no password has ever been set, then it will be the default.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #1
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [PTZ] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #2
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [CH2] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #3 This reset will work on Android based DVRs only. All steps are performed on the device itself.
  1. Turn the device Off
    Wait 2 minutes
    Press and hold the following buttons
    • POWER,
    • HOME
    • VOLUME UP
  2. The unit should power on. Once it does, you can release power.
  3. Use the volume UP and Down buttons to select "Wipe/Factory Reset" from the recovery menu.
  4. Activate the reset using the HOME button.
    When the DVR goes through it's setup again, it will be at factory defaults. The password will be 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #4 This reset will work on SDR models. It may also work on other models.
  1. With just the cameras showing, press the following in quick succession using the remote:
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Menu
    • Enter
  2. Make sure you press them quickly, one after the other. If it doesn't work the first time, try doing it several times. It can take many tries to get the timing right. If/when it works, you should get a screen that gives you the option to reset.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #5 This reset will work on SDR models where procedure #4 failed. It may also work on other models.
  1. Press the DVR Button to place the system in DVR Mode
  2. Press:
    • Freeze
    • View
    • Return
As with Procedure #4, you may need to press Freeze, View, and Return in in quick succession a few times to get it to work. The timing can be tricky.
These reset procedures cover many Samsung Security DVRs, but not all. I will add reset procedures to this article as they become available to me. By design, Security DVRs are made to be secure, and not all of them can be reset by the consumer. If you have an urgent need related to your Samsung Security DVR, you should contact Samsung directly at their support page Samsung Support, or by calling: 877-349-3149. For less urgent matters, you can email them directly at Email Samsung Support. Support is available 7 days a week, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm EST.

How to hard wire the power supply for a 2.4 ghz wireless camera model 49-2535


Warning: not only would this void the manufacturer's warranty but it could also damage or destroy the product; & you should take or use the necessary precautions to avoid electric shock or any other health risks. Since the AC power cord plugs into the back of the camera, hardwiring a power cord would require unit disassembly & replacing the manufacturer's intended power cord connection with the same power cord or one rated with the same specifications at your own risk to cut off the camera plug-in, to separate the wires, & to anchor these wires to the power jack wires of the same polarity. This could require the use of a multimeter & the use of a plastic plug anchor at the border of the hole leading into the back of the unit. The plastic anchor would serve to further secure the cord to the unit & to reduce unintended entry of moisture, dust, debris, & so forth. Take further precautions if you intend to solder the power cable to the associated wires, & secure the wires at the connections, isolating each new connection with electrical tape, Plasti-Coat, or the equivalent.
