Anybody ever thought of protecting your EXPENSIVE equipment investment in the event of a fire in your house?
I myself do own quite a number of elctronic equipment like notebooks, videocams, binos etc and next on the list could be a spotting scope, a dslr camera, a thermal imager etc.
There're are ways like keeping such expensive stuff in a large safe deposit box when not in use but then this would become inconvenient if you're using them regularly. Keeping such stuff in the safe deposit box would be good if you're going on a overseas vacation trip. A safe deposit box allows the prevention from theft and fire since it's guarded and the room itself has no combustible materials.
Alternatively, you can keep such equipment in a DATA safe (not the normal document safe) in your house but it's only good against theft and not against fire. I was informed that the safe is not airtight and the internal maximum temp. of the EAGLE data safe is about 60 deg C. At this temp. the mentioned equipment would be damaged in one way or the other like softening/melting of the plastic components, malfunctioning of the electronic circuitry, distortion of the lens etc.
I know many spent huge amount on camera and accessories and even going to the extent of keeping them in dry boxes but what about against a fire in your house?
Do you insure your expensive equipment?
Would like to have your feedback on this. Thanks
