Hey there, reptile fans! Today we’re going
to go over a new item from Zoo Med: The ReptiCare® Terrarium Timer. This 24-hour, programmable Timer automatically controls when your terrarium lamp is on.
This makes it easy to provide a healthy day-and-night cycle for your reptiles.
Setting up is simple. First decide on when you want your Timer to turn on. For
this demonstration, we want our lamp to turn on in the morning at 7 a.m., and
turn off at night at 8 p.m. On the Timer, locate the black ring of tabs around the
dial. Each of these tabs represents 15 minutes. The a.m. hours are indicated by the black rim on the dial, while the p.m. hours are indicated by the white. Push down the tabs adjacent to
the times you want the lamp to be on. After you’ve programmed the hours of
activation, turn the dial until the arrow on the timer’s face points to the
current time of day. For now we’ll say it’s 3:30 p.m. Once you’ve set up the
Timer, plug it into the power socket you plan on using. A red LED will light up
whenever the Timer’s socket is active. Notice the red bypass switch on the side.
When the switch is set to ‘Timer,’ it will provide power according to the times set.
When set to ‘On,’ it will provide constant power. Check for this light when using
the Timer to make sure both the outlet and the Timer are working. Also make sure the device you’re plugging into the Timer is set to the ‘On’ position. if you
followed these directions correctly, your ReptiCare® Terrarium Timer is now ready
to use. That’s all for now, thanks for watching.
