    Well I wish you had not spent that 50.00, because you could have spent 100.00 and purchased a real temperature control device with digital set points, that controls the exact temperature you need.

    You can see them here...

    I purchased the dual control which is more expensive but has built in fault tolerance.

    Here is the single thermostat

      Notice that these devices can support a lot of devices, such as a couple of stacks of cages, or several rack units.

          I have the 500R also, (I think I paid about $30 through Big Apple Herps :) and it has worked great keeping the temps constant. Granted, I can't set it for 90 degrees vs. 88, but it works fine for the money. It is controlling my CHE and UTH.

              Boaphile's thermostat is a Ranco Electronic Thermostat control and is supposed to be a great unit! There are other places online, mostly beer and brewing supply stores, that have the Ranco Thermostat Control for around about the same pricing as Jeff. If you go with the units from ther brewery supply stores you will save a few bucks but you will have to wire outlets up to the controller your self.
