1. Getting things arranged in your facility
All of us have done arrangements at home and after a while we come to realize that things are exactly as messy as they were before. And we start the rearrangement over and over again, but sometimes, especially when the house is large enough, we find it difficult to get the items back to their initial destinations. This after some time results in lost items and so called “surprise dolls” (items which we come across accidentally during tidying up the house). This is the most common problem, which people face every day all around the world.
What those people need is a good home inventory software, which will make the home arrangements much easier. Imagine that you have all your bedroom items in corresponding directory called “bedroom”. What you do when you come across a mess in your rooms? You start checking the items in your rooms with optimized search tool, and you locate the items to their original locations. This is especially easy with the premium feature of Hometify barcode reader, which gives you the possibility to search the item location by barcoding it. So you take the item, read the barcode and the software tells you where you should take it to. Easy enough, isn’t it?
2. Relations with insurance companies
Unfortunately none of us is fully secured from accidents. And we all know that the most part of our lives lies in insuring ourselves from those accidents: we make savings in a bank, rather than at home, we do not carry cash any more, we struggle to buy the most secure cars, we struggle to learn HSSE rules when being at certain places, etc. The inevitable part of this process is our relation with insurance companies. This process may not be funny at all, especially at the moment when the claim is about hundreds of dollars loss, and your agent is trying to avoid giving you the coverage for that.
Try to find out what Deborah Barlowe tells us about insuring ourselves from problems with insurance agents.
“Create an inventory of your personal belongings by preparing a written, itemized list of your possessions. Write down what is in each room of your house or categorize your possessions based on the purposes for which you use them. Create a pictorial inventory of your belongings by photographing or videotaping the personal property you and your family members keep in your home in addition to preparing a written list. Obtain an appraisal of a piece for which you added an endorsement or rider to your homeowners policy in addition to including the item in your inventory.”

4. Moving to a new house
Changing your address has always been a challenging game: you have to gather thousands of items; you have to put the items into different boxes, securing the fragile items from getting broken down into pieces, etc. The address changing arrangements are not easy things to perform, especially when you need to write down each step and every not-to-forget item on a piece of paper.
The typical process flow of moving to a new flat can look like this:
- Making list of necessary not-to-forget items;
- Sorting them relatively to rooms;
- Putting items into boxes. (Each box needs to have its room number on it, as well as the list of items inside the box.);
- Marking the boxes with fragile and other item specific tags;
Hometify makes the process of address change much easier. The process can even become funny for some of you.
You can take the best from the “Address change” functions of Hometify:
- Arrange the information about not-to-forget items by boxes;
- Count the number of needed boxes after filling in the sizes of the items;
- Printing of the list of not-to-forget items;
- Marking the virtual boxes with information you need: box number, room number, list of items, fragile items, etc.
- Marking your boxes with NFC Tags or barcodes, making them easier to identify the pre-stored information about the boxes, after just identifying the barcode with barcode reader.
Hometify contains some predesigned tags to be used by yourself when needed:
- This side up;
- Box numbers etc..
Please remember, your property matters.
