    AcuRite in Canada?

    Trying to find a decent unit that measures temp/humidity in Ontario (GTA). Right now I have two running, a thermometer with a probe and a separate hygrometer but to maintain accuracy I'd rather run one unit.

    Also looking to get a thermostat for my UTH. I have it on a lamp dimmer with a probe on the glass below the substrate. I keep an eye on it keeping it below ~95 just incase he burrows (seems to like staying on top of his hide in the fake bushes out of sight).

    Thanks in advance guys.

    http://www.cornelsworld.com carries T-stats too good ones at that. I have also had no problems with ordering herpstats from spiderrobotics the manufacturer.

    Accurites are not easy it get here at all. The model most use has also been discontinued by the manufacturer (no longer on the web site) and in my experience is no better than any other. if you want a dual try exo terra it is as good (or as bad) as the rest. Flukers also make a non probe one that is ok as well.

    Or...

    and a analogue hygrometer that is calibrate-able like this one it is accurate (as good or better than cheap digital ones) and less problematic with dust and dirt. It can be re calibrated if it starts to read in correctly.

    Thanks Guys. I'll check Lowes on my way home, and I guess I'll just keep an eye on the UTH with the dimmer until I can order a t-stat from Spyder directly.
