I just received a new device for tracking humidity inside the case. D'Addario Humiditrak. It connects via bluetooth to a smart phone, sends an alert when humidity goes above or below the limits I set. Does the same for temperature, and impact. It is tiny and lives in the case either attached with velcro, or a small provided clip. Because my cases have accessory pockets,  I just placed it loose in there.  I also purchased the small instrument humidifier to live in the case. Any humidifier is fine, but I needed another anyway. In addition to this bluetooth accessory I use a Tile tracker. On the odd chance I become separated from my case I can find it on the app, and even ring the device with an alert from the phone.

Wow, nice technology for the instrument. How do you know the best humidity percentage for the reeds, wood and bellow ? And the allowable variation before to consider it's too low or high ?

To be totally honest I don't know an ideal. I put the humidifier in the case during winter months, In my room the humidity is often 18-26%, my case goal is above 30%.

If it connects by Bluetooth, how do you know if there are irregularities when you are distant from the sensor (out of the house, eg.).
