Light Switch Question

I've been looking for a light switch like this. It alerts me when the light is on in the garage. Anyone know where i might find one?

One toggle operates the den overhead light and the other the garage overhead.

My local home center and electrical supply carry illuminated switches but I've not see a two switch with one indicator light. Make sure you pick the right type depending on what you want. Some switches are continuously illuminated like a light switch while other illuminate when the switch is in the on position.

This is probably the most common style I see.

I have seen a few of this style where the light is in the switch toggle.

It is called a pilot light switch and you must have a neutral in the switch box for it to work.
