Keeping the temp.

I just got my very first chameleon today, and I want to make sure she is going to be comfortable. I'm using a 2X2X4' reptibreeze cage with the mesh screen, but I don't know if my heat lamps are warming it up enough for her. She is a veiled chameleon.

Do you have a reliable thermometer? Have you measured the temp under the light (at the nearest branch or vine) and also elsewhere in the cage?
