Ok you guys what bit of tech gear will do this?!
Just need wireless link of some sot of about 20 meters to turn a relay on and off.
We are doing every building in the CBD in our village in Heritage style lighting and controlling most of it by redundant CCTV Cat 5 cabling except a few of the sites are isolated from this Network.
Thanks

Thanks but didn't want 230v - just something to wirelessly control a relay for switching. There will be a central control point to control all the lights (allowing for the big difference in the annual sunset times) and the Cat 5 cabling will enable each buildings lighting to be controlled.

You will still need something to control and power the relay.
If mains power is off the cards, how are you planning on powering this solution up?
