Out of town- lights issue

Postby SunDragon » Tue Dec 29, 2020 3:31 pm

So I was trying to go to my moms tonight to help out with something and return tomorrow. ( Everyone has Covid opinions and I respect them all, this is just a question regarding the lights for the dragon.) My husband leaves for work at 5:30 am and I usually turn off the dragons night time heat source and turn on his lights around 8:30-9 am. Would it be ok for his lights to go off earlier tonight and on tomorrow morning around 5:20-5:30am?? That would be 3 hours earlier than normal. I don’t have automatic switch to turn on both uva and uvb or to turn off the night heat projector. Any suggestions??

That will be fine. But, your life will be a lot easier if you invest the 8 bucks it costs to buy a timer haha :D

Thank you so much Brandon! I lucked out and have someone helping me out but I do think I will get more timers. I am always worried because I can visually check if the timer worked when I’m not home. :)

Hi Karrie,
I have an Arcadia 50w heat projector for night heat. It has been working out really well.
