Definitely. The thermostats have their own probe which you place which tells the thermostat if the temps are too low/high/just right depending on where the dial has been set, which is where you'll notice the lights flickering on/off. The digital thermometer has a probe to be placed by the stat's probe, and is needed to tell you what the temperature actually is, as the thermostats don't give you a reading. To be fair there's not a lot of point there being temp guides on stats, because they don't tell you anything you need to know
