You have to wait for some time for it to stabilise. When the door is opened, air is exchanged. So the longer you open the door, the more air exchange takes place.

Even if it is set & stabilised @45%, you open the door for awhile & closed it back, you'll see the RH goes up.

So try not to open for too long & just organise the things inside properly so that you don't have to open for a long time to search for your stuffs.

Store only the right things in it. The rest can leave outside. If not get a large dry cab ;)

Looks like you are using the digi-cabi 30L. Set it to between 11 & 11.30.
The RH should hover around 44-46% +-. But best that you monitor it for a day or so & don't keep opening & closing the door so that the RH can stabilise.
You won't get a constant reading everyday, it'll fluctuate +- ;)

Set the knob to 11am position. You can put your stuff in. It will take 2 days to stablise. Fine tune the setting to at 45%RH. In fact somewhere between 44 - 47 is ok. Everytime you open the cabi door, the RH will change and we will have to wait for another 2 days to let it stablise again.
