Usually an inexpensive hygrometer will give you a fair indicator
of the humidity in your storage bag/area.
Here in Parker CO we hover around 15-20% and drop below that in
the Fall & Winter. Once upon I time I played with a humidor made
from a beer cooler to keep the beans hydrated, but gave it up
when my stash got too big.
For those in arid areas, humidor instructions here:

How can we measure the humidity in our beans and alter that
humidity if it
I live in a very humid climate (NC) so I have not worried with
out as one might expect in an arid zone. My greens may even be
some humidity. Most of the time, my 1Cs are clear, but
something like this Harar comes along.

I have taken wimpy beans form 30% to 65% and the difference was
1st went from wimpy to dramatic & made the resulting finished
considerably more flavorful.
Seems to be easier to control the roast.
I now monitor moisture as part of the process.
