Help and advice on shopping for: Reptile Light Controllers

Find the right fitting for your enclosure

There are three parts to every reptile tube lighting setup, the right bulb, a reflector and a controller. Controllers are important so we’ve created a range of top quality controllers from leading brands like Arcadia and Exo Terra to help you find exactly what you and your pet need.

What are reptile light controllers?

Reptile light controllers are tube light fittings designed to power reptile lights and allow you to turn them on and off. Most reptile light controllers are easy to install and can be incorporated into wider systems to create more complex lighting arrays. Turning your lights on and off is very important as it helps to give your reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates an artificial day-night cycle, reducing stress.

Why should I buy reptile light controllers?

Reptile light controllers are a necessary part of any tube lighting setup as they are what powers your bulb and allows you to turn it on and off. Depending on your budget, you might want to get a canopy or lighting kit if this is your first reptile lighting system, however, experienced reptile keepers will often buy controllers separately to get the exact fitting they need for a specific type of bulb.

What are the main types of reptile light controllers?

Light controllers are divided by their fitting and wattage. These factors will decide which sort of bulb you will be able to fit into the light controller, with more powerful bulbs needing a much higher wattage. The fitting and size of the reptile light controller will also determine if you can fit the hardware into your enclosure.

What should I look for?

When buying reptile light controllers the most important thing is that you find a controller that is compatible with the bulb best suited to your pet. Research your pet’s needs and use that to find the right bulb then find a controller with the right fitting and wattage to support that bulb. If you are still trying to decide what controller to buy, try to find the most energy-efficient option to limit the impact on your electricity bills.
