Help With Wiring Fan Switch


I am replacing a regular switch with a humidity sensor switch. The regular switch worked fine.

It has two black wires and a ground coming from it.

My new humidity sensor has more wires and I don't know which ones to connect them to.

Here is a video:




I the video, when I say "the light, however, does work"... the light I'm referring to is connected to the switch on the right.

I would just do a "trial and error" thing, but I'd rather not have any fire department activity or have a broken switch on my hands.

Thanks!

Take the white (neutral) wire from the new switch and wire nut it with the two white wires that are still tucked into the box.

dave has it right, take that white out & tie it too the others.if the two blacks just went to a single pole switch then you should be good. i belive the neutraul is for the pilot light to operate.
