Simply Build It

Simple answer No in most light switches we don't have a neutral. Only way would be to wire to ceiling rose which is why many remotes work directly to light and are built into light fitting not wall mount. Very common with ceiling fan light combo units. Replacing wiring in the wall is only other way.

Sorry Eric
