Wireless relay for lights.

I have searched around some and can't seem to find what I am looking for.

I want a wireless controlled relay with a good range (not 50 ft) the remote has to fit into my pocket even if it is a little big, and preferably a couple of buttons or so to enable me to turn on/off all of my led lights at different times but this feature is not imperative. I have windshield mounted lights now but I am planning on a 50" on the roof, 10" on my winch and a 20" on the hood.

I am not 100% sure if it matters or not because it is just a relay but the 50" is rated at 20amps so it would have to be able to handle the power of all of the lights.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Google it. I did a quick search and found these. Most seem to only handle low amp draw, but you could use the wireless relay to control a standard relay that is capable of larger loads.

Oh ok, I didn't understand that you just use a wireless relay to power a stronger relay. Thanks! I thought the wireless relay needed to be strong enough to power the light itself.

You connect the wireless box 12v output to the actual relay trigger input or if the lights come with a harness and a switch, you just cut off the switch and wire the leads to the wireless box.

You may get more results by simply searching 12v wireless remote, instead of "relay".

Hmmm you could, with a bit of awkward wiring, but why? dont you want it wireless?
You could buy the set that comes with two controllers, you can attach one in the inside of your jeep and keep the other in your pocket.

Well, I already have two switches on my A-pillar so I figured why not add the 3 more switches for my new lights. I thought it would be cool to have it remote controlled pretty much for the sole purpose of entertainment. But there could also be some benefits.

Yep. Your options are limitless with relays. The tricky part is wiring it.
