Hey all, hope someone can help me.

On entering my kitchen I have a double light switch, 1 controls the main lights and the other controls the under cupboard lights. However over the other side of the room there is another double light switch that controls other under cupboard lights and some in cupboard lights. I want to combine ALL the in cupboard and under cupboard lights to the 1 switch over by the entry. This would require alot of cutting into solid walls and running wires all round my kitchen, so was wondering if anyone knew of a simple wireless transmitter product I can attach to the switch I want and a reciever that I can replace with the double switch on the other side of the room? I have seen some products but all have a physical wireless switch, which I dont want. Hope that all makes sense! :scratch:

Thanks for any suggestions peeps! :thumbup:

Simple answer is no*, not without major alterations which is not what you want.

* That I am aware of, since they either need room for a battery to operate the switch and you have to add a receiver some where, and as you want two sets of lights from the same switch extra cable would need to be installed.

Yes, I've had a proper look now. A pity.
