Help: hacking fog machine with timer relay Answered
Hello, everyone. I need a little help! I'm not very skilled in circuits, but I have already did something similar with a different device (following some tutorials from instructables); this time the same approach seems not working.
I have a sensor which triggers a timer relay; when the relay is triggered on i would like to switch on my fog machine (which is already turned on and heated) and spread the fog until relay reset.
From the relay I have a COM and the NO(/NC) output.
I need to connect those outputs to my fog machine cable controller (which i cannot unmount completely). I attach here some photos of my circuit.
The first image shows a red area (short circuit!), and two green areas (fires fog): if i connect the relay output there (COM or NO or NC) circuits reacts even if the relay is off.
I have tried connecting the relay out to blue/white wires but nothing happens.
What can i do? I'm starting to think to connect only NO (or NC) to both blue and white wires.
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you so much.

Thanks for the first 2 replies: connecting COM and NO to blue and white cable was the first thing i did, but with no success. I tried again (maybe i was doing wrong), but again no success.
I add 4 new pics of the circuit from above (i have dismounted it). Hope it is much clearer now.
Thanks again for your support.
