    I think you're having a problem with your post too. A little more detail  might be helpful😊

    Hi 😊
    I believe @Pete.8  has one of these ... hopefully he’ll see this and be able to advise. 😊

    I don't have one of those Dove, I have one of these

    So I just put the sensor into the sand in the base of my heated propagator and it keeps the right temperature.

    But looking at the Elexir on Amazon it's a plug-in thermostat and will only sense the temperature at the location where it is plugged in, so it's a room thermostat, much the same as the one you use for your central heating.
    If it's to keep a greenhouse at the right temp, it should work and could be used with a heater of up to 3Kw.
    It won't work to keep a propagator at the right temperature as the temperature sensor cannot be inside the propagator, but you don't say how you're using it.
    I'm happy to help but need a bit more info.
    What heater are you using it with and what's the purpose?
