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.

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.

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.
