As a reseller you put your life and soul into collecting rare LPs that could boost your sales. Storing records to keep them in their best condition is essential for you. Unfortunately, vinyl has some natural enemies that you definitely need to keep out of your collection.

Fortunately, indoor climate monitoring could be a real lifesaver for you. Monitoring is important for protecting vinyl collections because extreme temperatures and fluctuations in temperature and humidity can damage LPs. By monitoring the indoor climate, it is possible to maintain a stable temperature and humidity level that will help keep your LPs safe.

Why you should monitor your treasures

As a reseller, the worth of your record collection lies in the condition of your LPs. Warped records with mouldy covers won't get you the price you hoped for. Monitoring your collection to make sure that your vinyl remains in pristine condition is therefore vital to your business.

When storing records, a remote monitoring system can help you detect changes in the environment that could cause damage to your records. For example, if the temperature in your storage environment starts to rise above the safe range for vinyl records, a remote monitoring system can alert you so that you can take action to prevent warping and other forms of damage.

storing records

1. Fight sunlight

Even though natural light makes us humans feel better, it isn't good for everything. Vinyl for example can get seriously damaged by sunlight. Exposure to direct sunlight or other sources of intense light can cause vinyl records to fade or discolour over time. To protect your collection from damage caused by sunlight, it's important to keep your LPs out of direct sunlight and away from other sources of intense light.

A lux sensor may be beneficial for storing records because it can measure the level of light in the environment where the LPs are stored.

2. Don't humour humidity

Monitoring is important for protecting vinyl collections exposure to high levels of humidity can cause mould to grow on LPs, which can damage them permanently. By monitoring the indoor climate when storing records, resellers can be sure that the LPs are kept in optimal conditions, which can help preserve their sound quality and prevent damage.

You can use a humidity sensor to make sure that the relative humidity in the storage area is within the safe range for vinyl records, which is typically between 35-40%.

3. Temper temperature

If you're storing records in an attic or in a container, you probably fret hot summers. Exposure to very high or very low temperatures can cause vinyl records to warp, which can affect their sound quality and make them unplayable. In general, it's best to store LPs in a cool, dry place, with a temperature between 16-21°C.

A temperature sensor can help you ensure that the temperature in the storage environment is within a safe range for collection.

Warped LPs due to heat

Storing records in the best possible way

A remote monitoring system allows you to monitor the temperature, humidity, and other factors that can affect the condition of your LPs from a remote location. This can be especially useful if you have a large collection that is stored in a different location than your business, or if you need to monitor the condition of your records while you're away from your business.

  1. Keep an eye on your collection, 24/7 when you're half a world away
  2. Receive an alarm notification when something's wrong
  3. Ensure that your LPs are kept in the best possible circumstances by using the relay output module

Reporter is the versatile monitoring system that lets you do remote check-ups on your records 24/7. With its integrated SIM-card it does not need a wifi connection and works everywhere. Its internal batteries manage to keep the system up and running for a while during a power outage.

Don't worry about your vinyl collection that's in storage when you know it's in safe hands. Reporter lets you set alarms for when your set thresholds have been exceeded. For example, you receive an alarm notification when the humidity in your storage becomes lower or higher than 35-40%. Or when the temperature becomes lower or hotter than 15.5-21°C. Even the amount of light reaching your collection when storing records can be measured through the lux sensor.

The relay output module lets you switch on or off a machine with a simple push of the button: a dehumidifier, a heater, a cooler, draw the shades down… etc.
