When there is an unexpected issue (could be anything from a humidity spike to a fire) the smart thermostat sends me a text alert so I can investigate for myself
I take my toys, comics, and collectables very seriously. How seriously? Aside from my homeowner’s insurance, I also have a separate policy just for my collection of vintage toys and books. I would be emotionally devastated if anything happened to them, but I would also be out a lot of money. I don’t collect these things just because they are nostalgic, I also do it as an investment in my future. I estimate the collection to be worth one to two hundred thousand dollars at auction, and that price will only go up. I invested in a customized HVAC and climate control system to make sure my collection stays in peak condition for many years to come. The reason that there are so few valuable comic books on the market is that these items require superior air quality to stand the test of time. Comics used to be printed on cheap paper with cheap ink, because people usually threw them away. High humidity and heat, combined with inferior air quality can ruin a comic book in a matter of months. This is part of the reason I had the customized climate control system put in my collection room. The smart thermostat constantly reads the room for every environmental factor, and turns on or off as needed. When there is an unexpected issue (could be anything from a humidity spike to a fire) the smart thermostat sends me a text alert so I can investigate for myself. My collection is perfectly secure now, because the climate control protects it and the smart thermostat watches over it.
