Setting up brand new CHE set HELP!!!
 
I don’t want to repeat anyone post but I haven’t really found my answers anywhere.
I’ve just got a brand new CHE system (dome, thermostat with dimmer and CHE bulbs).
Could anyone help me with the thermostat setup? I’m SO confused lol. I get the temp setting and all but how do we set the day/night light routine? I’ve got the INKBIRD thermostat
Thanks a million!!!

I'm not sure about that brand thermostat but ours only controls the CHEs and we have a 24 hour timer from the hardware store to control the light. 12 hours on and12 off.

Can you take a picture? I don't know that brand but mine was super straightforward so maybe just experiment? If I know what it looks like I might be able to help. And what issues are you having?

Taking a guess here, but did you buy the dual time cycle model? You will want to set it up as heat only. Hedgehogs require the same temperature both day and night. If you bought what I think you did, I don't have one, but that model has a time feature that allows you set a day and night time temperature setting. Which is meant to be used with some plants and animals the benefit from having a cooler evening temp, but its an unneeded function for our hedgehog's requirements.

Thanks everyone! I realized I did everything but mention the brand I’ve got lol. It’s the INKBIRD and I’ve figured it all out. I’ve set a full day/night cycle without a timer. His cage is now regulated and cozy warm &#x1f642;
