Momentary button to power a load for 5 minutes

Hello all,

I have a want/need that I hope someone can help with. I want to use a momentary switch to start a timer that powers a load for 5-10 minutes where the load is 120VAC at 0.5A. Maybe even better is if I can have a wireless button so I wouldn't have to run wiring. I've seen 'timer relays', but nothing that takes a momentary connection to start the timer cycle.

Can something like this be done relatively easily?

Thx for any help.
