Frequently Asked Questions
Because we felt that the gun storage methods in today’s market are too inaccessible.
What is ZØRE X?
ZØRE X is a revolutionary gun storage system, with an easy to use dial code that can unlock your gun in under 2 seconds. See our product page
for more info.
What is the ZØRE Bridge?
The ZØRE Bridge is a Bluetooth-to-WiFi converter for the ZØRE X only. It can be used to receive tampering alerts from the ZØRE X when you're away from your home. It is not needed for the ZØRE Watchdog as it has a built-in WiFi support.
What’s so fast about unlocking ZØRE X?
ZØRE X has developed a revolutionary unlocking mechanism that is fast, reliable and easy to operate, even in the dark: The RAPIDial.
RAPIDial counts the clicks while you turn it, regardless of the dial starting point or the direction you turn it. It recognizes your combination and opens immediately. You can set any code you want. You can choose a very basic code such as 1-2, or something more complex such as 5-2-6-4-5.
Do I need to purchase a Bridge with the ZØRE Watchdog?
No. The ZØRE Bridge is an extension for the ZØRE X only. The ZØRE Watchdog has a built-in WiFI support and thus you'll always receive a tampering alert straight to your phone, even when you're outside of your home.
Is ZØRE X dependent on a smartphone? Do I have to own a smartphone to use ZØRE X?
No. ZØRE X is a stand-alone storage lock.
For those that would like, the smartphone app offers more options as an added value: For example, it enables ZØRE X to notify you when someone tampers with your gun.
Can the ZØRE X cartridge device damage the barrel of my gun?
No. The expansion of the cartridge only occurs at the moment that one attempts to charge the gun, and while the gun is in ‘rest mode’, there is absolutely no pressure being applied to the barrel. Any unauthorized attempt to rack the slide will not cause any damage to the barrel. This is because the locking unit is coated with polymers, thereby not allowing the barrel of the gun to be damaged in any way.
What if I charge my gun and ZØRE X is ejected from it, will the ZØRE X be damaged?
ZØRE X is highly durable and was designed to absorb a 6 ft. fall of a fully loaded 1911 with the ZØRE X inside it.
What if someone removes the battery from my ZØRE X?
If someone attempts to remove your battery, first off, you will receive a tampering notification. If the battery is removed an additional notification will be sent informing you that your device has lost connectivity. Throughout this time, your gun will remain locked.
Is the RAPIDial electronic?
Yes. The RAPIDial is an electromechanical dial that was developed by ZØRE and meets the highest military standards.
What if the battery runs out? Will my gun disable with no way of opening it?
- ZORE X uses a CR2 Battery that will last for more than a year.
- Three months before your battery drains, ZØRE X will send you notifications, reminding you to change your battery.
- One month before the battery drains, when unlocking ZØRE X, it will not allow you to re-lock without changing the battery.
- In addition, you are able to set your ZØRE X to open automatically before draining out.
- If your battery drains out, nonetheless, you are able to remove the battery and replace it. During this time, the gun will remain locked and not allow unauthorised use.
How close to my ZØRE X should I plug the ZØRE BRIDGE?
ZØRE products support BLE (up to 30 ft). We recommend plugging in the ZØRE BRIDGE in the same room as the stored gun with ZØRE X.
Does the ZØRE BRIDGE communicate with only one ZØRE X lock?
No. One ZØRE BRIDGE can communicate with multiple locks when they are within its Bluetooth range so you can monitor all your guns through the app with one bridge. We recommend to plug in the ZØRE BRIDGE in the same room as the stored gun with ZØRE X.
Can I be tracked by my ZØRE X?
NO. ZØRE X does not have a GPS, therefore tracking it is impossible.
Is it possible to hack my smartphone and lock my gun?
No. The only way to lock your gun is mechanically - by physically pressing the lock button. Unlocking your gun using the dial overrides the communication with your phone, so you always control your gun when it is in your hands.
Will communication screening interfere with the RAPIDial?
The RAPIDial is separated from the communication system and overrides it. When the lock is in the hands of the gun owner, RAPIDial will always open the lock.
Will I be alerted if the bridge gets disconnected?
Yes. If the communication with the Bridge is lost for whatever reason (such as power outage, loss of the Internet connection in your home, etc.) you will receive a notification about it on your phone.
