Find out from Safe suppliers etc. where you can provide power to it and what kind of supply you need, and whether this changes the safe-opening procedure once it's powered up. Set it up and do it, open the safe...and probably change the battery.
Then try to remember who needed what backup service....

New battery on 1610 safe but no green lights and will not open


Battery does not have enough current to actuate the mechanism. I have 2 Sentry 1610's with the same problem. I solved it by removing the battery & using a variable DC Power Supply set to 9 volts, and adjusting the current up until I got a response to my combination on the keypad. This is the only way I can get into or close my safes now.
