    Hi there,

    My automatic garage door needs a push button (open/close) and indicator light inside the house so I can open/close the door from inside.
    Also would be good to have the the inside indicator light go on/off when I use the garage door remote to open/close.
    Any help would be much appreciated

    Your question is quite vauge.
    What are you asking for exactly?

    Are you trying to design your own garage door opening/closing system and you're needing help on where to start?

    Are you looking for someone to design something for you?

    Or do you want someone to point you in the right direction in terms of existing products?

    I'm going to assume that your existing pushbutton switches are momentary. In this case you're inside panel will have the up & down switches wired in parallel with its corresponding garage switch.

    Be aware that what your doing is dangerous! It would probably void the liability section in your insurance policy. Opening and closing a garage door that you can't see is not wise.
