    Member Alexio of New York tells about these two:

    Both Lowes and home depot sell this , its made to dim lamps but it can also be used to control heat lamps\heat tape. It is very cheap and very low tech. It holds the temps at whatever the slider is set to but it requires some adjusting and watching to get right.https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/6...BaseShopping&gclid=CLG69tegttACFc1KDQodpJEK5Q
    For my tortoises i use either a vivarium electronics thermostat, a herpstat thermostat, or a zilla thermostat, https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai...ahUKEwjq6JamobbQAhXk0FQKHbUSBcsQwg8IHw&adurl=
    The prices and abilities can range widely by brand, as well as that some of them are pulse proportional and some of them are just on\ off thermostats. Usually the on\off thermostats are sufficient in most tortoise enclosures.

    And member Speedy-1 of Arizona tells of this thermostat:
