    I have a hydro foam under the uth just like you have it, I also put a probe inside the tank above the uth. Even when I set the uth to 78 on the hydro foam it reads around 92 inside the tank above it. I don't know how to fix it

    You can attach the probe to the underside of the UTH then. (So between the UTH and whatever the cage is sitting on.

    Are there any other heat sources on the cage? Sounds like you have a heat lamp skewing your probes readings. Otherwise I would recommend replacing the hydrofarm.

There are thermostats like the herpstat 2 that combine more than one thermostat into a single unit, but these have multiple probes, separate outputs, and separate set points.
    it work so?

    Does the probe accurately read humidity since it is buried under substrate?

    The probe doesn't read humidity at all, the probe only measures temperature.

    The humidity sensor is behind the screen on the unit





    The component inside the red/orange box is the humidity sensor

    The component inside the Blue box is the cool side temperature sensor (labeled as indoor on the screen)

    The component inside the purple box is the clock

    The probe is the hot side temperature sensor (labeled as outdoor on the screen)

    Based on the vents on the back of that unit, I would assume that it has a very similar configuration to the thermometer I posted pictures above. The same or a very similar setup should work with it as well.

    The amazon page says 2 sensors, not 2 probes....
