    hey all,
    i dont want a big show pc.
    and i dont want to spend a lot, but I want to occasionally know if its too dry or humid in the HOUSE.
    I see nice, very small Hygrometers like 2.75" but they list for Cigar/ or Guitar....

    Is there any reason I cant hang this in the house?

    If you ask me; It should work!!!!!
    That Hygrometer does not know if it sits in a cigar box or is on the wall in the living room.
