Presumably you mean something like this?
Timer operates contactor coil which provides double pole switching to sockets.

You would have to provide details of how you are powering this system, what actual products you have and your level of technical expertise to be able to do this work. Otherwise we are guessing, presumably if it is a kit then it should have wiring instructions included.

It looks like it is already wired up and just needs an incoming supply and a lot of attention to electrical safety; enclosures ,barriers and cable colours spring to mind.

Oh really, you think Electrical safety is as important as production- stage or otherwise.

I think the members are of the same mind.

 

I suppose next you'll next be asking how to get around the meter clocking up an extortionate amount.
