Anyone familiar with the inkbird controllers?
Got one to set up, wanted to use one output for main heater, and second output as a failsafe back up heater. The instructions are clear as mud! Lol

Don't think you can, on mine at least one is heating, the other one is cooling (for fans etc)

Yeah most have one cooling and one heating outlet, but this one is defo 2 x heating and which is why I got this one specifically.
Think I've got my head round it really. I'll just need to set the thermostat on one heater a couple degrees lower so it never comes on unless the first fails.

Sounds interesting, you got a link?

Using the heater thermostat should do the job 👍
