Is it possible to have a fan run on a timer and based on temp?

I've got a fan setup in my stand to go on when the water temp exceeds a set value; is it also possible to have the fan come on periodically to flush out the humidity from inside the stand (i.e. 1 minute every hour)? If so, how do I program this?

You would use the same programming as you would for a doser, with X minutes off and Y minutes on I would think. Then have an alarm set for when it exceeds a certain value and have it turn on.

This forum is lightly visited, you amy have better luck on their main support forum--> digitalaquatics.com--> support->forum.
