Unsafe Safes

"Unsafe Gun Safes Can Be Opened By A Three-Year Old".

From the article:
[E]lectrons do not open doors; mechanical components do. If you can compromise the mechanisms then all the credentials, encryption, fingerprint readers, and other gizmos and gimmicks mean nothing.
Or as Bruce Schneier notes: "In other words, security is only as strong as the weakest link."
