Default RDM and simple status reporting

I have a DMX need where I am controlling an effect remotely via DMX. Lets call it a smoke machine. I turn the smoke machine on remotely, and after a few moments, the smoke machine heats up and goes into a "ready" state. A local 24 volt lamp on the smoke machine say's "I'm ready" . I would like the ability to turn the smoke machine on via DMX and get an indication at the control panel when it is in a "ready" state. Then, using another DMX command, I would like to cue the smoke when I want it. This seems terribly simple to me, which means that it is either impossible or will cost four thousand dollars to engineer. Any thoughts on how to do this economically? Does anyone have any RDM hardware that I can get to do this? Jim
