Pretty good temp range. . . might want to up the humidity to the 60-70% range if you are planning on cellaring things for many years.
49-62 F is great! Humidity is near 100% inside your bottles. If you turn them once a year... I mean... Yes, if you are 30 now and are cellaring wine to drink when you are 80, I would invest in a humidity regulator to get the humidity up there. I would also invest to keep the wines at 55 degrees in that case. But if you're turning the wines once a year and not planning on cellaring anything longer than 25-30ish years, I think you're set.
(And no, do NOT worry about 49 degrees being too cold.)
