The Neo sensor is specially designed to help keep humidors at optimal temperatures for preserving fine cigar products. Knowing the best conditions to store cigars is only the first part of the equation. It’s also necessary to monitor humidors to avoid improper conditions damaging your stock. The most important factors you need to consider are temperature and humidity.
The ideal conditions for cigars:
Optimally, cigars should be stored at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and 70% percent relative humidity. However, most cigars are fine when stored between 63 to 70 degrees. Relative humidity should go no lower than 65%, and no higher than 72%
Cigars stored in dry conditions show signs of cracking, especially in the outer paper layer. Not only that, cigars don’t taste the same, and may burn much more quickly when they dry out. The paper wrapper may even split entirely.
High humidity can also cause the paper wrapping of cigars to split. However, the bigger issue is often mold and mildew, which can render cigars unusable. Much like dried cigars, the burn isn’t even as it was intended to be.
The iM-HC-1 Neo Sensor
Many people invest their time, money, and passion into collecting special premium cigars. These cigars can last several decades in perfect condition, provided they’re stored properly. Manually monitoring conditions in your humidor takes time, and frequently opening your cigar storage can change the conditions within.
This Neo sensor allows you to keep a constant eye on your humidor, without disrupting your cigars. The sensor is wireless, and reaches a connection of up to 100 meters. Unlike other temperature and humidity loggers, the Neo takes environmental readings every minute, and directly uploads them to our cloud system. Should you lose power, the sensor will store its readings for up to a month.
You can access these readings no matter where you are, even when you’re thousands of miles away from your humidor. If you’re worried about losing valuable cigars because of a failure with your humidor, set your optimal range of conditions and receive an alert if the sensor takes readings outside of that parameter.
