Remote switch activated and deactivated by electric current for Christmas lights

My home has a Christmas light switch wired with a timer that services all the window lights except in the garage. I want the window lights in the garage to come automatically with the other Christmas lights controlled by the master timer. How do I set up a switch to control the garage window lights that turns on and off in sync with the Christmas lights in the house?

How are the existing lights wired? Is it simply a single 120 volt circuit controlled by a timer? Does the timer control receptacles are is it directly wired to the lights?

It would be really easy if the timer was in the garage.
