I bought my friend a very expensive light fixture a year ago.. and it doesn't get much use because the only way to turn it on is to reach down and hit the toggle switch attached to the cable. I know that we could run the light into a switched outlet.. and use the light switch, but it is going to be used in a dorm room in a couple months.. so i was wondering if anyone knew a way to use a small, handheld remote control to just hit a button to turn it on and off. possibly infrared? Let me know if anyone has any ideas.. Thanks!!
