I went to CVS today and found a plug in remote control for a light. Im going to plug in my extension cord in the garage to it tonight and see if it works. It says it works to 50 feet. I have my heat lamp on an extension cord into my attached garage but its still very cold to go out there at midnight to plug it in. THis way I can just step out the door and hit the remote. I hope it works. I know I recently saw a similar thing in a catalog but i cant remember where.
