Long story short, my buddy is about to move into our apartment and live in our walk-in closet

The one thing he really hates about it so far is that the lightswitch is on the outside of the closet door.

Whats the easiest way to allow him to use a remote or something to turn the light on and off from inside the closet?

I tried amazon but "light bulb remote" only brought up cheap looking stuff like pic related

thank you /diy/!

this

or just use a floor lamp/table lamp with its own switch

you are welcome

Lutron Maestro wireless dimmer. Make sure to not get the RF variety as that kind needs line of sight to operate. Make sure you understand how to install the switch correctly, and research if the switch requires a neutral conductor, as older building wiring usually does not have a neutral at the switch.

Depending on the light switch location, I would just just a hole on the inside wall of the closet, right behind the light switch, rotate the box and switch to be inside the closet, then put a blank plate over the hole on the out side.

Nope.

Maybe replace fixture with a pullchain light fixture.
