The theoretical operating temperature for most electronics is about 
30F-125F, however whenever possible components should be kept between 
68F-72F for optimum use.  The greatest single cause of failure for 
electronic components is thermal shock, and a stable temperature is much 
more important than an optimal one.  Just a minor point, but if there are 
fax machines in there, how do you plan to keep it locked?
