Thermostat Recommendations

Postby Shaun78 » Mon Aug 03, 2020 6:58 am

Hey gang
Staring at Mr. Pickles empty enclosure has me very depressed but good news is on the horizon. I'm on the waiting list at my local reptile store to adopt one of the few surrenders they have coming up. So anyway replacing my POS thermostat with a Herpstat1. Never used this one so is there a better one out there or is this a good stat (reviews seem to be good but looking for first hand usage)? I'm replacing some generic one I got off a breeder who was moving and looking to dump gear.

I've never felt the need to use a thermostat but I know cooperdragon uses that model. From all I've heard and seen over the years, it's very well made.

It was a bummer to read about the misinformation you got from the shop in your other thread. I'm glad you were able to give Mr. Pickles a good home at the end. You made a positive difference in his life. I'm glad you are able to adopt another dragon and give them a good home too. Lots of dragons out there in need.

I use the Herpstat2 (I control both the basking light and my heat projector with it). It works pretty well and once you have it programmed it is hands off. It does a nice job of adjusting the temps when the house temps change (usually most in spring/fall as seasons change). Also keeps the overnight temps up by kicking in the heat projector as needed overnight (usually in winter). The new model has more features and web connectivity. I haven't tried that yet but the older product I have is worthwhile. The Herpstat 1 should work well if you want to control just the basking light.
