I like to use several of the digital thermometers with the indoor outdoor
feature. The outdoor probe can be dropped in tanks, or set on hot spots in a
reptile pen, or buried in the substrate of an amphibians enclosure, etc. Can
also set the unit near the ceiling, and the probe on the floor. It is
amazing how much the gradient of temps can be in all these areas. I also
like the new feature some I got for Christmas had, a humidity meter. To top
all this off, they lock in the high and low temp/humidity until reset. This
really handy out in my sunroom.

The outdoor probe is pretty quick to react to temps. You can set all the
probes in one spot and see how accurate they are against each other.
Temperature can be key for checking out things going on with your animals.

They also work great outside. Put the probe in parts of your pond, and tuck
the unit under a shaded pail to keep it dry.

These are invaluable to me, and pretty cheap to boot. Now if there were pH
and dissolved solids meters that worked as easily and priced similarly...
