    do you want remote control or radio control?

    remote switch is easy, just run a long wire to a switch, make sure that you have the power to make up for the distance and youre done

    radio control will get a bit difficult, not terribly hard, but difficult

    Dead simple if you just purchase it, you would almost certainly spend more building it then you will having this dropped off at your front door...

    BTW, I have run these at 9V, but something to consider it will put a constant drain on the battery, so remember when it's off it's not really off and the battery won't last for extended periods of time...
