How to use a trigger to start fan

I just purchased this fan for my AV receiver
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009OWVUJ0..._rKIpEbZVSESZP

It plugs directly into an outlet for power. What would I need to connect this fan to my receiver via a trigger so the fan turns on when the receiver turns on. I'm not familiar with triggers or any components related to it at all...any cheap products out there that would do that for me?

Since the fan is 110VAC and the trigger is 12VDC you will probably need a relay you can control with 12V that can switch 110V. Just perform a quick search for a 12V relay to control 110V. Many options to choose from for $10+.

Another way is to plug it into the switched AC outlet on your receiver. It will power-up when the receiver is turned on.

How would I connect the fan to something like this.

The fan only has an outlet to plug into a wall

The red and black are the input and you will need to put a 12V trigger plug end on to it. I think it’s a 1/8” plug with two sections. I can’t see the writing on the silver screws, but two are probably for the AC supply voltage and the other pair is for the load (fan). This is pretty heavy-duty for a fan. It can handle upto 250VAC and 30A.

It is a more expensive solution, but they have fan that have automatic temp sensors in them so they kick on when things get hot vs just when power is applied. They are surprisingly cheap and work very well. https://www.acinfinity.com/component...CABEgKCCvD_BwE

I use something like this for a fan similar to yours.

Don’t have enough posts to post a link, but try adding a www+dot in front of amazon, below.
