You will have to create a warmer gradient in the cage with lighting, as the day temps won't be warm enough to permit the cham to warm up and stay warm enough to digest its food properly. The cham can tolerate cool nights as long as it can warm up enough during the day. You may need to warm more area of the cage so it doesn't have to spend the entire day crouched in the warmest spot under a light. Are those temps the same year round? If it gets colder in winter you may have problems, as a cold cham will be more likely to get respiratory infections. I'd suggest setting a cage up completely with thermometers, humidity gauges, lighting, proper humidity (which is closely effected by temps), plants, etc. to test how it will work before you ever get the cham. Better to find out beforehand just what it will take to get it to work.
