iOS Mobile Application:
MyHOME Scr.APP.book –
Home Inventory Mobile Application
The Fall 2017 update to the iPhone Operating System (iOS) has rendered the NAIC's MyHome "Scr.APP.book" mobile home inventory application inoperable. As a result we have deleted it from the Apple App Store until we are able to re-write the application, test it and submit a tool that we know will work for consumers. We are working to resolve this issue quickly. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.
We remind consumers that a home inventory can easily be made without a smartphone.
The NAIC provides a Home Inventory Checklist (PDF) that can be printed and used as a guide. This service inturruption has no impact on Android® devices.
The NAIC recommends that you organize your list by room. For each room, make a list of valuables kept within. Remember to record items in closets or storage spaces.
For each item simply include:
- Item name or description
- Purchase Price
- Date of purchase
- Brand Name (if applicable add model or serial number)
Add photos of your items or a create a walk-through video of your property and valuables to make the record more complete.
Remember to update your inventory each year, or when you make a big purchase. Always store your home inventory off-site, at your office or in a safe-deposit box.
Taking the time to keep an inventory can make filing a claim following a disaster much easier.
