Ellenby is a pioneer
in the smart safe industry
with the launch of the first safe products in 1996.
Our designs are currently in their fourth major generation and have undergone countless enhancements over the years. We strive to produce the best value on the market with an emphasis in the areas of:
Hardware providing protection and deterrents against forced entry.
Embedded architecture providing security of data and communications with encryption.
These three considerations drive our system design and are ingrained in every safe we manufacture.
In most applications, our standard CashTrak™ products meet OEM and customer’s needs but our highly experienced engineering staff can also custom design Smart Safes for private labeling.
If you are not familiar with the applications of Smart Safes to streamline cash management processes, you can learn more about Smart Safes and all the considerations you should address in finding the appropriate solution for your business needs at www.smart-safes.com.
In-line hinge with solid ¾” steel core provides a clean look with the security of no lift or pry points
Electronic or key lock option on all doors with encryption on all lock data communication links
Steel-reinforced lock mounting plates
Wrap around doors offering additional security from forced entry
Full Surround™ bolt retention
Automatic bolt engagement upon door close
Our patented 2 door design provides service without access to money allowing the rare occurrence of a bill jam to be cleared by local store personnel
Intrusion alarm option – if someone tries to open CashTrak™ safe in off hours our additional security option will create loud siren alert while also communicating an alert to your alarm company
Internal Battery backup provides the ability to monitor safe transactions and events even when unplugged from the wall, the backup batteries themselves are protected within the safe
Lockable cassette keeps your Bills from being accessed by unauthorized personnel
Embedded architecture is highly resistant to hacks and viruses compared with common commercial operating systems
Encrypted data communication signals on internal wire harnesses to any optionally configured electronic locks
AES 128B encrypted data communication to host servers
Our patented 2 door design provides the ability to perform nearly all service without access to the money. When end customers retain access to the service door, they can clear simple bill jams without even involving a service technician.
Controller applications can be updated over-the-air providing future proofing for system changes or new bill designs from the Treasury
LED Keypad with fully sealed membrane switch provides durability that is highly resistant to spilling
The brains of a CashTrak™ safe is a robust, efficient embedded microcontroller that does not require the use of any fans for cooling
Thermal printer highly resistant to spills

Cellular modem option allows for an instant, highly secure connection to a server without navigating customer’s local network
Three levels of assignable permissions based on job role – Cashier, Supervisor, and Manager
Embedded architecture design highly optimizes electronics for smart safe control
Over the air, remote updating of validators ensures no need to worry about new currency releases
Multiple methods of connectivity available for back room systems or servers
Fully developed VComm™ application program interface (API) to support integration with web portals
Unfortunately, this is not an easy number to arrive at. A smart safe solution involves a shift in the way your merchant customers conduct their cash management process. Costs are associated with each of the many cash touch-points.
Ellenby’s smart safe equipment aims to automate many of the time consuming cash tracking processes, and significantly reduce the threats of both internal and external theft.
Using a smart safe, the costs of ownership is a combination of the equipment price, the cost of servicing the equipment (typically in the form of a service contract), the cost of managing data, and armored car service. The below graphic illustrates the traditional retail cash management process along with the associated costs and risks of managing that cash at each process step.

Bank processing fees
Traditional methods of non-automated cash management require a great deal of time and money for the manual counting of currency, cash audits, and preparation for bank deposits. There are also significant costs of cash attributable from theft both within the company and by robberies.
The cost of ownership of a smart safe solution is comprised of the equipment, the service and support of the equipment, and the data processing related fees. If using an armored car to transport cash, the transportation costs actually decrease since pickup frequencies are reduced since the cash is completely accounted for and secured within the store.
With a smart safe solution, the labor associated with counting and auditing cash deposits become negligible as do cash losses from theft.
Without a Smart Safe
With an Ellenby Smart Safe
We minimize the combination of the equipment costs and the service costs while making it easy to link with web portals to view safe transactions in real-time online. You can expect an Ellenby smart safe to operate with an industry leading service life and with the lowest annualized service call rates.
needs from small to high volume cash transactions.
Electronic Smart Safes can be custom designed to meet your specific needs. Our standard products include the CT400 (CashTrak™ Supervisor) compact single validator Safe for low volume transactions and non-armored cash transport customer, the fully networkable high volume CT410 single validator Safe, the dual validator CT420 Safe, and the CTD420 coin roll dispensing Safe.
Some of our accessories include various capacity lockable cash cassettes, risers to adjust the Safe to fit under any counter height, electronic locks, thermal printers, coin acceptor attachments and matching Side Safes for storage of rolled coins and other valuables. Our Safes can be adapted to practically any third party backroom or POS system using the Ellenby API through a number of available interfaces including RS232, cellular modem, and Ethernet.

Compact single validator safes offer the most economic way for automating cash management. The CashTrak™ Supervisor is a great fit for customers that bring their money to the bank themselves rather than hire armored car pickup services.
Single validator safes are designed to deliver complete cash management in a small footprint. The 410 series can fit conveniently near cash registers to make it easy to perform cash drops. Advanced security features in the design of this small safe make it formidable against any intrusion.
Dual validator safes are designed for locations with frequent drops. Cashiers can alternate deposits between both validator heads to speed up deposits. Two validator heads also ensures redundancy such that your safe will continue operating even if one validator has a bill jam. A third drop door comes standard on this model. This series is available with either 2400 note or 4400 note total capacity.
Ellenby’s rolled coin dispense safe holds between 400 and 500 rolls of coins and bills depending on configuration. These safes are configurable to a customer’s particular change making needs, are easy to load, and come with optional, industry-first, advanced automatic change verification electronics package. Available with one or two validators for cash deposits and pay-for-change.
