remote control wired switch

we have a few outdoor lamps on one switch. to try to figure the wiring out would be ugly, as it's previous work.
in any case, I'd like to remote control one lamp that shines on the neighbors for when we're on the deck.
I'd like to install such a remote, between the box and the one lamp.
Anyone seen one?
What I've found thus far are very small (some solar) LED replacements that don't give off enough light for when we want it on.
This is a good idea, but too big for the base.

I bought this Woods outdoor wireless power cord two years ago and have been very pleased with it. It allows me to plug in whatever I want (outdoor lights in my case) and use a remote to turn them on or off using the included remote. It also has different settings for auto-on or off, or a timer function if desired.

good idea, but this is an outdoor fixture wired to an electric box, so that wouldn't work.

Is the lamp fixture mounted on a junction box? If so, then one of these might work:
Relay module

You would also need to purchase a remote control for it.

How many Watts is the light, what style base does the bulb have?

Would this work?
KEDSUM Wireless Remote Control E26/E27 Light Bulb Socket Remote Controller Switch

the Kedsum is too big and won't fit in the base.
perhaps 180 wts. E27 base.
