Hi, everyone! I wanted to get everyone's opinion on the HygroTherm Humidity and Temperature Controller, By Zoo Med.
I am currently using an Ink Bird IHC200 for Humidity Control and have the ITC 308 but have not used it as of yet.
I am looking for something a little bit less complicated for my daughter to use.
Thanks in advance for your input!

So when you say for humidity control how are you using it and with what devices?
I personally do not use anything for humidity control. I have a mistking system that is set up to do misting sessions with the appropriate drying time allowance in between. This maintains my humidity level and give spikes when it mists.

May I please get a little more info on this? Typically foggers are never used during the day due to heat+fogging= respiratory issues. Most people just put them on a timer for night time use and this is normally between the hours of 12am-4am since cage temps are at its lowest and there are no lights being used.
With a misting system like the mist king you will not need to have it on this type of device due to it having its own timer and being able to set the schedule up appropriately.
Are you having issues keeping your humidity up? What type of Cham do you have? Are you using a screen enclosure?

Did not know that about foggers! Have done a lot of research but missed that. Thanks for that, tidbit!
We have a veiled chameleon, named Groot, and a glass, Exo Terra Natural Terrarium X-Tall. Not sure if humidity is an issue as we try to keep the humidity at a constant 60% (RH-I think its called). We have a lil dipper and a pressurized sprayer we use to spray his habitat, 2-3 times a day. Maybe I miss read all the info I found on this site/others and am overthink everything....
