Would someone mind verifying these switches will work for my bathroom remodel?

My bathroom currently has a single switch that controls the lights above the mirror.

I plan on purchasing:

This fan/light.

This combination switch to control the light above the mirror and the light on the fan.

This timer switch to control the fan.

Thanks,

Nate

Hi, is there wiring to the F/L now? It really depends on what wiring is in the switch box now, can you take some pics of the wiring in the box?

Hi, no wiring to the fan/light, only electric currently is the light above mirror and an outlet below. Yep I'll take some photos later today. Thank you.

If the switch only has a black and white both attached to the switch then you will need to pull power source into the switch box. With only tow wires you have a switch loop. There is no neutral for new fan/light.
