I have a fan forced, so my thermometers sit on the screen the entire time, but yes, for hatch it'll be fine. For still air it is recommended to monitor the temps with a goal of 101-102 at the top of the eggs because the air in a still air is layered whereas forced air is supposed to be more even because the air is circulated. Many people actually adjust down a temp or so at lockdown anyway, so 100 is fine.
