Automating possibility of DSM

I'm starting a new tank and I'm trying out Dry start method to get a monte carlo carpet going. However unfortunately I come home only on weekends so that I cannot really spray and mist water on the carpet which is really a necessity. I was wondering whether I can automate this with an ultrasonic humidifier which would be turned on and off by a timer. I ordered a one today thinking that this could really workout. I'll be receiving the package in about two weeks time.

So is there anyone who had tried out this method. Can you all please let me know any pros and cons involved in this?

I haven't done it with a dry start method, but I read about using one for Paludariums. I think it would work. Take note that most newer models won't work with a timer due to the way their switch is set up.
