Using a surge strip to link multiple mats to a this digital thermometer, https://www.amazon.com/Jump-Start-MT10009-48x20-75-Seedling/dp/B000E3B8XG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1489757682&sr=8-1&keywords=Jump+Start+MT10009+48x20.75+Inch+Seedling+Heat+Mat, allows me to handle my various levels on the stand at the same time. Granted, the mats all are based upon the one probe reading, but in the setting of the light stand, the temps should be relatively identical, therefore the lack of additional temperature readings is insignificant.
I plan to purchase another of this thermometer to control another set of mats for an additional stand I am designing.
Connect the Heat Mat monitor's power cord into the wall, then connect the seedling heat mat's power cord into the monitor.
To set the degrees is very easy. Hold down the button "SET" until the numbers are blinking. Then using the up and down arrows, set the desired temperature then press the "SET" button again to stop the blinking. Also press down the "UP" button for 6 seconds for readings in Fahrenheit or hold down the "DOWN" button for 6 seconds for readings in Celsius.
There is a little wire with a plastic white tip that hangs from the monitor.
Push the white part into the soil for temperature reading.(Once temperature is set, do not be alarmed when your heat mat reaches its maximum temperature you set it to then the Heat Mat monitor temperature will go up and down 3 degrees to prevent over heating)
This is very helpful for starting seeds.
The instructions were clearly written, fairly easy to use . It has an LED display which is difficult to read in a sunny environment so an LCD display would be better I think. To have it control more than 1 mat required adding a short extension with a multi outlet end on it.
I have had it running about a week and so far all is well. It comes with a soil probe that you stick in the soil or it can also be used as to measure the air temperature . A more in depth description online with maximum watts/amps would have been helpful . It seems well constructed, water resistant but not waterproof. It was delivered very quickly.
So, I eventually un-unplugged the thermostat temporarily, to get a reading of the heat pad without the thermostat to see if that was a manageable temperature. I rearranged a few things to allow for better monitoring, and figured I'd plug in the thermostat again, and just turn it down in hopes that maybe I could get it to a better, more suitable temperature this time. Unfortunately, it never got to that point, because the instant that I plugged in the thermostat again, it started throwing an error that there is a short circuit in the temperature sensor, rendering the device completely useless, as it won't even accept a set temperature. I am in the process of returning this in favor of a different model.

Now the heat mat will only go on when it needs to be on and the little display always tells me what the temperature is...Read more
