You could cut in Lutron Maestro wireless switches below the fixture, then add a Pico to control both fixtures.

remote lighting


My home automation is mostly a product of Smarthome, so I am mostly familiar with their products. They have a smart light bulb called bulblinc:

If that style of bulb fits in your fixtures, you could then control it from something like:

While I have not used one, the Phillips "Hue" seems also to be gathering some media coverage. That bulb appears to be designed to allow one to control a bulb from a smartphone or certain harmony remote controls. You may want to check that out.
