sometimes multiple layers of security are a good thing, if they make sense. sometimes multiple layers are pointless because the extra layers don't add any extra security. and sometimes it's promoted in just about the creepiest way i've ever seen.
needing to swipe a card and enter a combination makes this a 2 factor safe, which may be a good idea, but that dog is giving me the willies - not to mention making the entire safe seem cheap and probably insecure. also, with that card reader, i wonder what happens when the unit loses power.
