remote switching

Hi Everyone and happy new year. I have two security lights I wish to hook up on the garage. Both need to be wired going to a switch. However I would like to hook them up to a wireless remote switch (instead of running hard wire) so they could be turned on from inside the house. Do they make a remote switching for this so I would not have to run wire from the house out to the garage? If so what am I looking for as far as hardware? Thanks Jim

Zenith makes a remote controlled floodlight. Home Depot used to carry them.
