Remote timer hack help

Cant see any other posts that are sorta the same as this so here goes, i have made a simple electric chair prop that uses a 12v timer cycle relay board to stop and start bits and pieces of the prop, i was wondering if its possible to link the timer to an older style single push button hard wired remote that i have for a fog machine that doesnt get used much anymore

So in short i want the cycle timer to open its circuit, do its bit with the chair, and activate the fog machine (which is always hot at the mains, awaiting signal from remote)

So i would need another relay in my setup?
Ok im at a lost, i have opened the remote switch and found a black, and a red wire that run off the push button, one would assume these 2 wired together would perminately close the circuit if that way inclined... and a blue wire that looks to operate the led “ready to run” light.

Im lost when it comes to what type of relay i need, and how to wire it between the cycle relay as above and the remote (black and red wire), and links to ebay items or reference pages to read up on would be greatly appreciated.

If you havnt gathered yet, im still feeling my way thru this lol
Thank J-Man, ive ordered the relay, pretty much as you described is what i was thinking only unsure on which way of wiring the relay.
Apologies about the other thread floating around... its the original thread i made but didnt (seem) to post at the time
Thanks J-Man, that was pretty much how i gathered the relay needed to be... now the waiting game to get some toys in

Thanks Frankie’s Girl, dunno how i messed that up
