COOL GEAR ALERT: Home Inventory

I’d like to welcome back to the site Binary Formations as a site sponsor. Kevin Hamilton from Binary Formations has created an ingenious program for Mac called Home Inventory, which allows you to keep track of your valuables and/or collections. Around the home it can be useful for keeping records for warranties, repair histories and owner manuals, while we guitar geeks can use it to keep full records of our gear, including serial number, modifications, setup specs, provenance if you wish to sell a collectible instrument later, etc.

You can also use it to create checklists if you’re moving house, and to keep track of your insurance policy data, and even to run reports to determine if your policy is giving you adequate coverage. Very handy for those with large or valuable guitar collections. There’s also an iPhone/iPad app (Photo Remote), which connects to Home Inventory over WiFi and lets you roam around your house and add items and photos remotely. You can also use it to add CDs, DVDs and other items by ‘scanning’ the barcode with the camera. Genius!
