Not a problem.

  1. I need a count and colors of the wires in each switch box.
  2. I need to know the wire colors on the black screw and on the gold screws in each box.
  3. Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester?
  4. Is the Aux Switch have a led light?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
There are 4 wires going to each switch, red white red and ground.
I sent you a picture of the schematic for the timer switch and remote switch, were you able to see it?
I have a voltage tested.
Not sure what you meam by the Aux switch

Wires are red, white black and ground

The Aux SW is the slave to the main switch. Unfortunately if both switch boxes only have a 3 wire cable you will be short one wire to install these devices.

On box needs 1hot, 1 neutral, 1 traveler and 1 switched hot to light.

If you can install a 2 wire cable to the light from either switch box or a new feed to either box you will be able to install them.
