Humidor Checking?

How often does everyone check their humidity? I feel like I check all the time, like 5 times a day. I'm going to be on that A and E show at this rate.

    Side note, you may wish to look into weather stations...

    I work at Best Buy and we sell one for about $50 and the sensor for Temp and Humidity is wireless...
    It sends the Temp and Rh (and I think barometric pressure) to a seperate screen so you don't have to open your humidor....

    Of COURSE it all depends on the size of you humi... All this is not necessary for a 50 count.

    I just look through the glass top, or glass door and don't need to open it to check humidity or temperature....But that's how I roll, lol...

    Now, before I built mine, I prolly checked them 5-6 times/day...That was how I rolled
  • I could probably put together a internet web sever from your humidor...then you could check it anywhere you have internet access.ie cell phone..you guys down for that?..i have lots of spare time

    You can buy a glasstop and have an IP wireless camera look at it 24/7 LOL! You will also see if somebody is fiddling with ur treasures... hey... i actually like this idea! lol

    When i wake up, after i take a shower in case some humidity snuck in, have my girl get off work at lunch to check it again(who knows), when i come back from work, when i open it to grab a cigar, when i close i look at again make sure it stablizes and one more time before i go to sleep to avoid bad dreams that my cigars are getting dry. Thats on a busy day. Dont worry, its normal :)

    A few times per week. Usually Every day on the weekend and 1-2 per week.

    When do you know it's time to refill the humidification device?  When it reads 60% obviously, but I'm OCD about my cigars as well as all of you.  Where's that fine line?  68%?  67%?

    I prefer my humi around 67 to 68 percent. I actually haven't filled my new beads at all yet because I was having some overhumidification issues. I usually check mine twice a week.
