Sounds like the perfect solution to a non existing problem. It's like elephant repellent spray - It must work because there are no elephants here, are there?

Mike before recommending Amazon perhaps you should consider this from the Guardian
"Amazon, one of the richest corporations in the world, which paid almost no taxes last year, is offering unpaid time off for workers who are sick and just two weeks paid leave for workers who test positive for the virus. Meanwhile, it demands its employees put in mandatory overtime."

Sounds ideal for storing film...

As someone who bought a small fireproof safe with rubber sealing, I would strongly advise anyone to seriously reconsider such a purchase. Not only was I confident that such sealing would keep out water (from the subsequent dousing a fire would ensure), but also rather wrongly concluded that it would help keep out ambient humidity. Of course, it instead created it's own humidity laden environment which fostered the growth of mold and mildew which proceeded to eat away at my precious negs. And the thought of something going wrong with the power source on this thing (especially when away), kinda sells a chill...

I somehow doubt that locking cameras away in any kind of cupboard - no matter how hi-tech - is at all superior to having them sitting in tha moving air of your office/ work-room/whatever. Surely the hi-tech cupboard just poses another potential threat? It could fail too. But what do I know?

I know it's boring, but buying stuff like this is expecting someone to deliver it. That is ... not risk-free at present, especially for the person doing the delivery. It might be getting close to the time where we should consider not putting people at unnecessary risk as being more important than our momentary convenience.

Especially if you live in a humid area
