    hey! Im new to using a thermostat and im having troubles setting it for my coastal carpet python. It has 2 settings witch im unsure of what they do. So i have the temp set a 33 and theres a "DIFF" setting witch i dont know what does exactly i think its how much the temp drops by before turning back on witch i have set to 4 so it drops to 29ish, last one is delay and im not sure what that does, what should i have it set to? Let me know if you need anymore info. Im sorry if im posting in the wrong section im not to savy with a phone

    Hi!
    You should be right about the Diff setting.
    Maybe it has two outputs and one is for a cooling device.
    In this case DELAY means the time before the output for the cooling device gets power.
    The inkbird thermostats are working the same way.
