Yes I have a Kasco ice eater but it is controlled by a switch inside my house, not by thermostat outside! Been doing a great job of keeping the pier free of ice for 10 years now.

I also have my shore power plugged into another outlet on the pier so when I run the deicer the batteries are being charged on the boat as well.

OK is that heat or just water movement that keeps the ice melted?

No heat, just movement. Here's another picture from 2004 when I had my Libby. In this picture you can see how much water action the ice eater provides when it's running.

My pier is 150 feet long. I have the lines tied to the basket on the ice eater in such a way it lays almost parallel with the water when it's running. The water is moving the entire length of the pier keeping all the pilings free of ice as well as my bulkhead.
