1. Standard mains power cable

The standard C13 power connector (computer power cable) is located next to the main switch.

C13 connector is one of the most common used solution for power equipments. External heating and humidifying unit can also be connected to the standard mains sockets especially designed for this purpose. You can shut the power of the device down by the main switch. 

The previously set program will resume automatically after being restarted. There are two other sockets on the back. One is for external heating and the other for humidifying. Both are adjustable from the menu. The information plate on the product (on the back, at the main switch) shows which socket to connect the humidifier and which external heater to operate properly.

ALWAYS turn off all switches and disconnect the mains from the connector before replacing any light or making, relocation, terrarium or lamp cleaning!


2. Stylish design

The stainless metal case provides the base of the design.

High resistance powder coating covers the surface. These two solutions guarantee durable and outstanding quality. With its black painted surface, the fixture fits onto almost any interior design style. Due to the properties of the painting, the fingerprint is also less visible and easy to keep clean.


3. Easy to use

Automatic operation of the controller is provided after simple adjustment. It has a simple rotary knob and LCD.

The most important thing about a consumer product is its user-friendly design. The LCD of the controller was designed with this in mind. The rotary knob makes it very easy to set up. Automatic operation means repeating switch of the lights (on and off) heating control and humidification timing on daily basis. It can be used for both day and night reptiles, as day and night values can be set separately. The controller doesn't need to be re-set, in case of a powerbreak. Every defined value is stored. As soon as the power is back, the unit operates.


4. Easy to read display

Understandable animated icons indicate when loads (lights, heating, humidification) are operating. Multilingual, transparent menu system. Language-independent basic screen.

It is also very important during useage all necessary information to be displayed on the screen. To do this, loads action is indicated by animated icons on a completely language-independent screen. An important element of everyday comfort is the adjustable brightness of the display. By pressing the rotary knob, all loads and their switching values, parameters can be set in the multilingual (Hungarian, English, German) menu system. If you change any setup, you can return to the basic screen, or after a few seconds (after the settings have been automatically saved), the unit will return to the animated basic screen.

What does “timed lighting” mean?


The rotary knob makes it easy to set the time of daylight and nightlight on and off in the multilingual menu.

What does “regulated heating” mean?


Basically this is the thermostat function. The temperature-humidity sensor connected to the device and measures the temperature and humidity in the terrarium. This sensor should be placed where we want to control and monitor these values.

Temperature control: the device maintains a constant, preset temperature.

The rotary knob can be used to easily set this temperature to the desired value.

What does “timed humidification” mean?


The temperature-humidity sensor connected to the device and measures the temperature and humidity in the terrarium. This sensor should be placed where you want to measure these values.

Humidity Control: the humidity is controlled by a timer. In the menu, you can set the start time and length of humidification as well as the repetition rate of the humidification cycle. This will create a humid environment for the animal.

Members of Surveyor product family include a variety of timers and a thermostat.
This equipment is used for lighting terrariums and assuring pets living conditions closest to natural.

The controller we have developed can be configured in the menu system. It is flexible to meet the needs of animals kept in terrarium with this device. Settings work with daily repetition. They do not need to be re-set in case of a powerbreak.

All controller settings can be accessed with the rotary button.
After all settings done, the lighting, heating and humidification of the connected unit is controlled by the device.

You can connect existing devices to the controller.

Animated icons show the currently active devices, and also show the temperature and humidity values of the connected sensor.
