I can never understand why any one would want to control any thing remotely, since you can not tell if it is actually working, not working, over heated and about to catch fire. The only exception would be a pan and tilt camera.
If you want to turn the lights just on or off you may want to consider a "sonoff" unit, to control all your lamps at once.
I can only say what I have, wanted to be able to switch bedroom lights on/off in bed, option was renew cable to wall switch and fit a pull cord or fit a smart light switch.
So fitted a Energenie MiHome smart switch, this is paired to three remote control units, that is the maximum plus a hub which we already had for the central heating, it will accept three set times to switch on/off and you can select which days of the week these are active for, I can use PC, Tablet or Phone to control lights should I want to as using a hub.
Using the IFTTT protocol I can do all sorts of daft things, for example turn on the bedroom lights in my bedroom if mothers bedroom gets too cold.
It does not require a neutral and works fine with a 10W LED bulb.
However there are down sides, with a power failure it auto switches off, with a bulb failure it auto switches off, can't switch it on with no bulb in it, it shows on/off with app on phone but not with PC. It needs a deep back box, and no tags top and bottom.
As one light in bedroom fine, however would not want all over the house. Since I already had sockets, and TRV electronic heads it made sense for me to use same system, no need to by second hub. But only used with one remote although it has the options rest is not used.
