How do you install this kit?

This LumenIZE Pro T5 UVB Kit, ShadeDweller 7% UVB is a revolutionary piece of equipment, designed to be installed inside or outside of a reptile enclosure. The kit comes with a T5 UVB Tube that's easy to install and change when needed, thanks to a brand-new, push-on/lock-in system that speeds up the whole process. To install the kit, either screw it into the canopy of your enclosure, rest it on a wire mesh covering your enclosure, or suspend it over the top of your enclosure.

Once installed, pair this kit with the free and easy-to-use LumenIZE app via Bluetooth. From this app you can control up to 50 different lamps easily and precisely, simulating natural sunlight and creating dawn-until-dusk lighting patterns that your treasured reptile will love. You can also use the app to increase and decrease light as the seasons progress, simulating a far more natural and, most importantly, safe lead into the winter slowdown and spring wake-up.

Why should I buy this kit?

The LumenIZE version of the globally trusted Pro T5 has been redesigned with updated electronics, updated reflector angles, and increased water resistance that protects it from splashes and makes it a great choice for all types of biomes. It's the sleekest and most effective design yet, offering smooth dimming patterns that, in combination with the LumenIZE app, puts you in control of the sun and provides your pet with a real sense of the seasons, all at the easy click of a button.

Make your lighting system larger by linking multiple lamps together with the specially designed LumenIZE Link Cables. These can easily connect up to 10 units from a single power source, which helps to cut down on energy consumption while providing your pet with a happy life. Thanks to precise dimming via the LumenIZE app, these reptile lights are incredibly energy efficient and can reduce energy spend by a massive 30% when compared to fixed voltage options.

LumenIZE enabled Pro T5 Lamps also store your programming within each unit and back this up with a small, exchangeable battery, which protects your programming against power cuts. As soon as power returns, your lamps will return to their regular programming. It's worth noting that if a lamp is unplugged or unused, the battery will still run and may drain, but they're easily replaced using the instructions provided.

Pro T5 Kits are small but mighty, utilising a sleek design and a specially curved reflector to maximise efficiency and project UV-rich light. They provide heat and project light directly beneath the unit at around 12/30cm to create a basking zone, as well as a wide flood of light that spreads out and allows you to create a suitable UVB provision for any species over a large area.

What is UVB light and why do reptiles need it?

The UV light spectrum is split into three parts. UVB light is light with a wavelength from 260-320nm. This kind of light has a bad rep with humans and is often associated with premature aging, but it's essential for reptiles which need it to synthesise vitamin D3 - an essential vitamin that helps in the absorption of calcium and, in turn, protects against conditions like MBD, or Metabolic Bone Disease.

Different types of reptiles require different amounts of UVB light. This LumenIZE Pro T5 UVB Kit, ShadeDweller 7% UVB from Arcadia simulates an environment that is perfect for shade-dwelling/crepuscular species, like leopard geckos, crested geckos and corn, king, milk and rat snakes. Any species that are kept using the Shade Method will love the conditions created by this kit!
