    Not sure which forum to post this in. I've seen some references to a temperature controller that one can plug an infrared heating lamp into and the controller will switch the lamp on or off according to what temperature is set. Can anyone furnish a link to a product like this? Thanks in advance! :0)

    I'm guessing you mean the Thermocube...just google it. They allow the appliance (fan, heat lamp, etc.) that's plugged into them to turn on at a certain temp. and off at a certain temp. They are not adjustable, you have to choose one with a range that suits you. Definitely shop around, because the same device varies greatly in price depending on where you get them from. I have a warm weather one (on at 78/off at 70) and a cold weather one. There are three ranges for cold weather ones.
