Setting Timers
Our NEHERP Live Vivarium Lighting Kits are compatible with any of the timers we've got on this page, and we recommend automating the light cycle whenever possible. Light has a significant effect on the biological clock of plants & animals, so the importance of setting a lighting schedule correctly can't be understated. Setting the timer controlling a vivarium's lights to a 12-hour on/off cycle will promote healthy feeding & behavioral patterns in animals and more effective photosynthetic activity in plants.
Electrical Safety
Everything on this page is UL Listed for safety, and we did our best to create a lineup featuring especially heavy duty supplies. Although the average sized bioactive terrarium's lighting has a fairly low power draw (30-60W by our estimation), it's important to understand these things can add-up quickly for those working on very large enclosures or racks of terrariums. With that in mind, just because a cord or timer is rated for "1800W" doesn't mean the circuit itself can support it. We strongly recommend doing a little research on this subject if your project could potentially justify the effort. Reach out to an electrician if you aren't sure!

Extension Cords

Heavy duty cables for jobs up to 1800W!

HD Extension Cord
▾ Show Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
These heavy duty extension cords are great for tackling heavy workload tasks around your hobby or work room. The cord material is sturdy & built to stand up to all sorts of environments. Each cord is grounded and has a 3-outlet opening on the end. Made from thick 14 gauge wiring and rated for up to 1800W (15A), these would be comparable to "Utility/Contractor" cords rather than the more common 16/18 gauge household cords. Our prices are usually lower than most hardware stores for an equal gauge, equal length product. Labeled for indoor use only.

Two grounded outlets offer easier connection of multiple devices. (Note: Each outlet not separately programmable.)

Timer - Digital Terrarium Controller

The most reliable digital power strip we've tested

Zilla Digital Power Center For Bioactive Terrarium Lighting, Misting, and Heating
▾ Show Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
We've found these digital power centers to be very useful when working with live vivariums. There are 8 grounded outlets in total. Two outlets are dedicated to daytime, two are dedicated to nighttime, and four outlets remain constantly powered. The constantly powered ones are perfect for either heaters, misting systems, foggers, or water feature pumps. There are up to 7 daily time cycles, but we've only ever needed the basic 12-hour cycle for live vivarium use! For reliability & peace of mind, we stock & ship authentic US brands (Zilla/Coralife) only. Each outlet has a sliding cap for safety, and this unit comes with a grounded 3ft cord.

Timer - Zoo Med Terrarium Controller

24-Hour programmable analog timer

Timer - Zoo Med Analog Terrarium Controller
▾ Show Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
The Zoo Med terrarium controller is handy for all sorts of different setups which require both continuous and timed outlets. Just about every species benefits from a scheduled day/night lighting cycle controlled by a reliable timer. (Usually 12 or so hours on/off) Then there are the other accessories like thermostats, heaters, fans, and misting systems which require power 24/7 in order to function properly. This nifty controller has 4 outlets which are always on plus 4 outlets which are controlled by the built-in timer. With this setup, you could keep all of your accessories plugged into the "always on" outlets and use the timed outlets for your enclosure's day light. This is now our only "terrarium controller" model, after dropping a competing digital product which couldn't match the good reputation of the Zoo Med model. Includes "all on" switch to bypass the timer for convenience. Each outlet is grounded, and the controller is rated for a total of 1000W.
