Device to switch on inside light from outside the door?

Would like to flip a switch from outside the door so the light is on when I enter. Anything that can do this, sort of like a doorbell, without wiring a switch and running it to the outside?

Just search online for "wireless light switch". Many options will come up.

Here's an example: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...APA1K4Y86RN60M

You replace your existing switch with the receiver/switch, and then install the remote switch wherever you want....

Carbide - this is good and it could work but let me be greedy and ask for more ... ideally I plug a lamp into a receptacle near the door that's not controlled by a light switch. That's the light I want to come on via a device outside the door ... ? (I did a search but nothing that does exactly that came up)

So here are two options:

https://www.amazon.com/Woods-59773-W...control+switch

https://www.amazon.com/Goronya-Elect...%2Bswitch&th=1

The first one looks like a regular switch, the second looks more like a remote control. In both cases, the receiver plugs into an outlet and then you plug your lamp into receiver.
