I am not entirely certain what you mean by "wireless" (RF? Powerline communication? IR?) I use Insteon and X-10 switches and devices. I understand that there are others, such as Z-wave, UPC, control4, others.

Depending on your needs and size of boxes, it could work very well for you. Caution....it can also be very addicting. Once you start down the path of remote-controlled lighting, you will want to start automating everygthing.
