Use Your iPhone to Help Protect Your Personal Property

March 30, 2011


One of the best ways to make sure your possessions are fully protected is to document them with a home inventory.  Now creating a home inventory is easier than ever thanks to myHome, a new iPhone application from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).  The free myHOME app lets users quickly photograph and capture images, descriptions, bar codes and serial numbers, and then stores them electronically for safekeeping.  The app organizes information room by room and even creates a back-up file for email sharing.  This will assist you in the event of the loss, when you need to know what you had.

What a wonderful way to accomplish a daunting process. Does anyone know of other apps or services to assist creating a home inventory?  Please share a comment if you do.
