Fan Switch from single pole to . . .

Am doing a bathroom reno and installed a new fan. Original switch was a simple on off single pole. I want to install a DewPoint condensation fan switch that will turn on automatically at a certain moisture level.
The new switch as 4 wires. green ground, red fan, black power, and white neutral. I know the ground, but how do I hook up the neutral and fan to the existing fan set up?
There is a double pole light switch in the same box that has a couple wires to it, and there is a mass of whites that I am not sure where they go

Can I hook up the neutral somewhere else, or put it with the fan like a single pole? What do I do with this?

In the attached picture the switch on the right is the 2 pole light switch and on the left is the fan switch that I hope to replace.

Your Advice is appreciated

The bottom black is the power in, the top black is the power out to the fixture. White to the white bundle. All grounds together and to the switches.
