I highly recommend this unit. Works perfect and simple with no wiring.

The choice of which pairs to use sets up the desired operation of the device:

Connect heater between C and NC (normally closed) if you want the power to be ON to the output when the relay is deactivated, and the power to turn OFF when you activate the relay. The relay opens the circuit when activated.

Connect heater between C and NO (normally open) if you want the power to be OFF to the output when the relay is deactivated, and the power to turn ON when you activate the relay. The relay closes the circuit when activated.

For our remote heater activations, we want to connect in the second manner (turn heat on when activated). I also see that the NO vs NC terminals are swapped on the second diagram you posted, so you should verify the actual setup of your device, too. It's the NO vs NC (terminal function) that matters, not the specific terminal number.

if this solution is already posted , sorry.
a 5 watt night lite bulb is enough in one of those thick styrofoam containers like labs use to transport blood. i put my light on a thermostat.
hdwe store has ''inline'' thermostats for electric baseboard heaters . you can figure out the rest.

What is required for me to use my neighbor's internet for this type of switch? I currently use it now to stream music with my iPhone when I'm at my hangar. It is not password protected...would I need his IP address or somethin'?
I guess I'm confused about how I would "call", or contact a WeMo switch with my iPhone.

I feel like such a grandpa...

Grandpa, it's internet magic. Once you purchase the WeMo follow the simple instructions. Do you have a smart phone? You will download the wemo app to your phone (or tablet) take the plug to the hangar and have it plugged in in-range of the wifi and two steps later it will all be in sync. Your hangar neighbor need not know. Nice...

I'm reminded of the question I posted last year asking about my Dynon autopilot installation; "..if I splice my roll servo into the wires of my pitch servo, how does it know where to send the input ?..."

Answer; Magic!

Obviously, I'm a visual learner, and when I can't 'see' the electrons, or ones & zeros, my brain starts smokin'.

I'm off to Walmart for a WeMo!!
