Im incubating beardie eggs in a hovabator right now as well at 82 degrees. All I do is keep a digital thermometer with a long corded probe (available at Home Depot) and place the probe under one of the eggs and it works well. Keep them in a small container on vermiculite with the thermometer probe resting under one of the eggs and you shouldn't have to open the hovabator at all except once or twice a week for air exchange. Keep in mind that most all of the temp measuring devices that you will find, digital included will only be accurate to within a degree or two unless you have a commercial food service industry thermometer, so keeping them at 82 will ensure they don't go below 80 or above 84 which is a nice range for beardie eggs.
