    I might spring on one too. A minor thing, but I like that it has a red color setting. The other models are blue lit which is harsh on the eyes in a dark room. I see a lot of room for them to improve on and add features for future models. I hope they keep developing it.

    An app that lets you read everything the machine is doing and be able to remotely do adjustments to it would be cool. And if someone were to use multiple herpstats if they could connect them all to that one app. Be able to name the herpstats on it so you know which is connected to a specific rack or animals by name. And modernize the fonts and presentation of the data that's shown on the website.

    Those features would certainly be very nice.
    Remote access and control via an app like that would really put them in their own league vs their competitors.

    This will be my first Herstat, my collection currently has VE-200 and -300s... they’ve been good, but have seen enough here and elsewhere to want to give the Herpstat a try.

    might as well start with the ‘huh, that’s neat!’ one vs. the beginner series.

    And oddly, for me the -2 Spyderweb is now gone from their site, but my payment is processed and order shows processing. Wonder if they sold out already?

    I agree with this. A company like that should have been able to develop an app where you can monitor each Herpstat. Don't know why they haven't evolved... I mean they have wifi plant monitoring apps.
