Aeon aeotec in wall microswitch connection issue

Hi I have a heated towel holder that has an in wall electrical connection. It has an on off switch built in. I am trying to connect it to the aeotec microswitch so that it will auto turn off in 30 minutes after turning on manually from the switch. I can’t seem to figure out the electrical connection. I have standard black white ground from wall and the towel holder has the same wiring. Here is a picture. The instructions are horrible. It talks about 3 way switch which I don’t think I am dealing with. Would really appreciate any help with getting this connected. My main question is what am I doing wrong w the connections based on this picture. Thank you!

  1. Too much thrust. Dial it down to like, 1 out of 7.

  2. looks like you have heater wired to the Aeotec switch input . The input does not switch power to anything, and it does not accept line power. And the terminals are a little small too. If you energized the input with 120v then I would expect the Aeotec to be damaged.

  3. This can only work if the heater has a switch that you can latch “on” llike a dumb lightswitch, or if it has NO built-in switch - so that restoring power to it, will make it resume heating. You did not picture the heater so I can’t tell.

  4. So you wire the heater lines to “load-N” and “load-L” .

nano switch on the other hand does accept power in on the S1 input for control from the switch itself. I would think you could use webCore to set a program when power is applied to unit wait 30 mins then turn off.
look at my other posts in the nano switch discussion for more detailed wiring.

you can see that is not a Nano, right? You gonna confuse the man.
