    Hi,

    it should be ok so long as the humidity level of the drycabi is at the suitable range.

    Definitely ok By the way, an aircon room usually has lower humidity than 45% or so which is what most people set their dry cabinets at. So your dry cabinet will retain humidity at keep it level at the configuration you set.

    Care to share why you are doing this? If you describe it already as 'freezer' then you admit that it's actually not convenient to you. Why this waste of energy and money? Your cameras don't need cold air and for beer there is a fridge

    OK, here we go again. Keeping dry cabinets with arctic inhabitants and later face fog condensation on the filter when the cam is taken out of the room.

    This trend of keeping polar bears and penguins at home is catchy.

    Keeping penguins and little red devils is fine with me. But Linux doesn't require such low temperatures

    I was merely wondering about the choice of temperature, not the location.
