I recently purchased a device called WE-MO made by Belkin that allows you to covert any plug to a wireless switch you can control with your smartphone. All you do is plug it into the outlet them plug the lights, pump etc that you want to control into the switch and once you connect the switch to your phones networking you can turn the device on or off anywhere you have access to an internet connection. I payed 50 dollars each and got 3 devices (2 for the ponds lights and waterfall pump & one for my indoor terrariums basking light system.)

My concern would be all the weather this will see.
It goes nicely in a gray gangbox costs about 3 bucks for the box and still gets reception
