Wireless Light Switches (for installing recessed lighting)


I am remodeling my 60-year-old house right now. Need to add recessed lighting to all the rooms. But I really don't want the pain of wiring through the wall.

I saw this one, the wireless lighting switch.

It's pretty steep at $240 for the receiver and the switch.

On Amazon.com I found out that Westinghouse is selling a wireless lighting switch also (only $10) http://www.amazon.com/Westinghouse-T...9992125&sr=8-1
However, it only sells the one with the plug-in receiver. I am just wondering, isn't it pretty easy to open up the box of the plug-in receiver and hardwire it? That way, I can leave one of these receiver in my attic connecting to the 4 recessed lights I intend to control, and with the wireless control I can easily get the job done.

Any thoughts?

Wire `em right instead of trying to jack-leg a device violating its intended listing.
