I upgraded a pull cord light fixture in our basement to a remote control light socket and wall switch by Dewenwils, and it works great and I even removed the pull cord chain. The switch has good range (claims 80 feet) so I can mount it at the top of the stairs and it works through the walls. I got the 1 switch to 1 socket (HRLS11B). But wish I had gotten the 1 to 2 sockets for a second light. You just screw in the socket to your existing socket, and the the bulb and it works. The switch has a small battery. Cost was $19. It extends the bulb out 2.3 inches so consider you clearance.
