The digital infrared thermometer is perfect to check the temperature in your gecko’s, snake’s, lizard’s, etc cage! This digital infrared thermometer will measure the surface temperature of whatever you aim it at! Simply point and click. No need to run probe cables or mount thermometers inside the cage again! Great for spot checking temperatures and hot spots.
These are also really great to see where your house heat may be escaping.

- The unit will come set in Centigrade, simply hold the bottom button (light bulb) for 3 seconds to change to Fahrenheit (it will remain this way even after a shutdown).
- Press the “measure” button to turn on and take a reading. Quickly press the light bulb button to turn on/off the back light.
- If surface of object is covered with frost, dust or other materials, clean surface to get accurate results. If the surface is highly reflective with very low emissivity value, apply masking tape or apply flat black paint to the surface to improve the accuracy.
- Press button to turn on the unit, the unit will auto power off after 10 seconds without operation
**the digital Infrared thermometer cannot measure through glass, acrylic, plexiglass, or other translucent material. If you attempt to measure your the temperature ‘through’ such material, you are simply measuring the surface temperature of the translucent surface.
