Electronic Temerature Control

I had a Ranco ETC setting around from my beer brewing days that I wasn't using. These units are industrial grade digital temperature controls that can be set for either heating or cooling. I decided to set it to heat and plugged it into my rope lights in my plumbing compartment. Now when the temperature drops below 38 degrees the unit will turn on my lights automatically and turn them off when the compartment temperature reaches 40 degrees.
