In the event of a fire or other disaster, would you be able to remember all your possessions? An up-to-date home inventory will help you settle your insurance claim faster. Here's how to create one.

A simple pencil and paper will suffice, but technology can make it easier to inventory your home by using the following tools:

  • Create a photo record of your belongings capturing important individual items as well as entire rooms, closets, or drawers.
  • Walk through your house or apartment videotaping and describing the contents.
  • Smartphone apps for home inventory management.
  • Cloud-based storage services (such as Google Drive, Dropbox).
  • Barcode scanners or QR code readers to quickly input item information.
  • Smart home devices (such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home) to automatically track items.
  • Home security cameras to capture video footage of the interior.
  • Automated inventory management software.
