I purchased three of these to be used for heat lamps to keep pipes from freezing. Mine have worked well for over a year. I have one in my well pump house, one in swimming pool pump house and one at the hunting cabin. You have to wire it yourself and you can wire it normally open or normally closed to cut something on or off depending on the application. I cut the heat lamp cord and wired each of these in the cut. So now there is no having to remember to turn the heat lamps on or having them run all the time even when it is warm. I set mine to come on at 35 degrees and they are accurate. They also could be used to cut on a fan when something gets hot like a dog house.
Note: They make one that is prewired and ready to go for those of you with no electrical skills. It plugs in the wall and you plug your device into the back of that plug.

This was exactly what I was looking for and spent a lot of time trying to find. The space inside is a little cramped for completing the wiring, but otherwise I was very pleased with this thermostat. I placed it in-line with a heavy-gauge extension cord which then connected to a series of outlets to automatically turn on heat lamps for a small greenhouse. It worked well and was certainly accurate enough for my application. Be careful not to overtorque the screws.

Nice thermostat for wet environment but comes with 1/2" hole already drilled in the top and doesn't include a grommet or plug for that. Would be ok if thermostat wire was in conduit but most greenhouses I work in have thermostat wire just stapled or tied to building or frame. I would prefer the hole at the bottom or none at all. I can drill my own hole. End result, you have to supply your own water proof grommet or plug.

This was exactly what I needed to control a greenhouse fan. Unfortunately, the design left much to be desired. I'm guessing one is supposed to buy the special duplex plug, but from the description, I understood this to be easily direct wired between the power source and the load (fan). This is not the case. Since there is NO room in the box for wiring, I had to drill a second hole and place another box below this one to complete the wiring. Then, the poorly manufactured base for the screws holding the thermostat to the box broke so I had to install new screws to hold the assembly together. Finally, the thermostat coil (external to the box) has no hole or indentation to allow the cover to fit!!! This is truly bad design!

After significant time and modification, I finally installed this thermostat in my greenhouse. I am very disappointed with the design and manufacture of this product and would not recommend it to anyone.

I initially had a problem with the product, but FarmTek was AWESOME to work with and more than made up for the inconvenience. I recommend them 110%.
