I'd also make sure there is a GFI (safety switch) in the circuit as
well. You can buy those too.

Only times I've looked at remote switching have been for a commercial
environment, so I've also looked for commercial solutions (and found
none that the bean counters would pay for ;) ). Unfortunately, these

and lawyers gone mad), DIY solutions are really only feasible for the
home (and even in that case, check your insurance policy!).
