Troy, NY | Engineering Team | Reports to Chief Technology Officer

Company Background

At Vara Safety, our mission is to bring better firearm safety into the lives of over 40 million households in the United States. We focus on creating beautiful, simple, and highly engineered products that satisfy both the need for safe firearm storage and immediate access in an emergency.

Most handguns are bought for protection, however, many gun owners find it difficult to lock up their firearms in case of an emergency. Existing box-style safes do not allow immediate access - no matter how fast they claim to be. Vara Safety’s Reach is an entirely new approach. As a holster-safe, the Reach is an “open” style concept that gives gun owners BOTH immediate access and storage security. The Reach uses biometric technology in conjunction with a versatile mechanical platform that allows for compatibility with most firearms. We will later expand to include smart data, communication, and analytics for law enforcement and military applications.
