Damper control motor

I have a 36" whole house exhaust fan mounted in an attic dormer with a gravity damper. I want to add a damper control motor. Problem- the fan is a two speed, wired from down stairs and the damper motor needs only one input. I think I need a relay to make it work. What kind of relay is required? Thanks.
