Maintaining the temperature – and more importantly – the humidity of your Humidor is critical for the health of your Cigars. Your humidor’s maximum temperature should not be greater than 73°F (23°C) and between 65-74% humidity. Ideal conditions are 70°F (21°C) and 70% humidity. While you can use a regular digital hygrometer/thermometer to better control the temperature and relative humidity inside your humidor, it is better to include a connected or smart hygrometer.

A smart hygrometer (or a temperature and humidity monitor) such as Tempi, helps you control your humidor and will give you piece of mind knowing that it’s keeping an eye on your cigars. How you say? Here’s how Tempi can help:

– Place Tempi in your Humidor – set it and forget it
– Connect to the Tempi App
– Tempi is always working in the background collecting temperature and humidity inside your humidor
– If the temperature or humidity goes above or below your setting, Tempi will send you notification to your phone

Experts recommend that you check the humidity level at least every two weeks to ensure that the humidity does not vary. But with Tempi, it is checking on your cigars all the time and that’s a great thing.

Here’s a quick list of Humidor dos and don’ts:

– Place your cigars in the humidor so that they don’t block the humidifier’s vents.
– Don’t put your humidor in direct sunlight.
– Check humidity levels every two weeks (Tempi will do this for you all the time)
– If the humidity level drops to 65% you should add more PG Solution or distilled water to the humidifier (Tempi will let you know if this happens)
– Never use tap water as it contains minerals and chlorine that can clog the humidifier’s pores and inhibit operation.
– Add a few drops of PG Solution or distilled water to the humidifier until well saturated.
– Dry off the surface of the humidifier and make sure that it does not drip water.
– Store your humidor in a cool, dry place to prevent mold growth.
