Garage door automation - Mouth switch

Cupertino, October 20, 2021

Guys guys, I'm thinking of making my light garage door stupid by using a toggle button to trigger the physical button on the wall. I will do this using the switchbot home bridge plugin and then show it in the HomeKit. I wonder if: A) is there any way to have this show as a garage door icon instead of a simple switch (maybe via plugs / homebridge plugins) B) I can buy some kind of third party contact sensor part that is HomeKit enabled (or can be through hoobs / homebridge) and show the status if the garage door is locked / unlocked in the homekit.
