The advantage of radio-frequency remotes over infrared switches consists in the fact, that radio can operate outside the zone of direct visibility. Obstacles to radio waves (for example, wall) reduce the range of the device, but the problem is easily solved by installing a relay. In this remote you can easily control the lighting of the yard, from the comfort of home. The zone of action of radio-controlled switches reaches 100 meters, the range of frequencies is 433 or 868 MHz, and power comes to 10 milliwatts.

Wall controllers are used to transfer command and turn off the light. Food wall controller comes from the battery, and attached to the wall it by a pair of construction screws.
