If you have the money, the more the merrier. You can never be too sure for the temp, and it's best not to rely on just one thermometer. My hedgie has one thermostat with probe similar to yours and then an infrared temperature gun, which is said to be more accurate if used correctly.

You do need to have both. The thermometer is used to double check the temperature that the thermostat is set at.
