Are you talking about the pendant switches on the Walmart floggers?

On the UK equivalent of these Foggers these switches carry 240VAC, so Im fairly sure that the US ones will carry 110VAC.

If you are talking about parallel controls then that could get tricky, Id link the Doorbell to the computer and in turn have that trigger the fogger

Ill have to look at how I rigged up mine, but I remember it was not straight forward, I think I had to leave the switch in the circuit and tie it down in the on position, I didn't spend a great deal of time on it so there may be a better way.

Skull fogger (walmart) electrical layout with relay

http://www.grimlabs.com/halloween/fogwire2.gif

This shows how to hook up a relay to use a fogger timer to run something of higher power. Eliminate the relay and wires going to the relay on this drawing for your purpose. You need to get insed the timer for what you want to do (and jumper the "fog" switch).

For myself, I modified a fogger timer with a relay to close the "fog" button when I pushed a "low voltage" button.
The schematic shows whats going on inside the fogger and inside the timer so you know where to jumper your relay into.

If you need more help...I can explain more.

Thanks for the schematic, I think it explains why I found the pendant less than straight forward.

I tapped a relay across where the Manual FOG pushbutton goes (but left the timer together so it still works as normal). I can then disable the automatic part of the fog control and then just use the pushbutton. My relays are all back at the control box and I run the FOG line (110acv) to it as well as the 24V for the relay control.


I was thinking of something like this the doorbell is for
when I can trigger it and the relay is for when im not at the house.
But a light will go on in my controll board when a can manually use it.
