wireless receiver/transmitter help please

I'll keep this short and simple.

I am looking for a remote/wireless way of controlling individual lights, such as LEDs and other LEDs etc... within the head lights.

So multiple channels are needed.

But this is the case, in order to keep the wiring clean and hidden... I want to out a receiver in each head light and have them both controlled by one transmitter.

Does anyone know where I can purchase something along these lines?

I know this item below is rubbish, but something neat, compact and reliable.
It must have a power in which can be wired via positive and negative terminals and have multiple channels out which can be controlled by a transmitter

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V-4-Chan...item2ebba704a9


Many thanks

Josh

Depending on the chipset the receiver uses, you can change a resistor or two or adjust the potentiometer to change the frequency. Then you can match the 2nd receiver to the same as the 1st and both will respond to one remote.

Thanks bud, but is there nothing I could possibly purchase off the shelf?

You'd be surprised at how effective that eBay crap is. It's pretty much what the Taliban and AQI use to remote detonate IEDs from range.

Can you use one receiver and run wires across from one headlight to the other? Or maybe one receiver doesn't have enough chanels?

Yes, and I am sure I can source one with enough channels... BUT
I don't like extra wires in the engine bay... And wires which have to come out of the housing may allow condensation to build in the housings, which has happend to me when I used to run HID Angel eyes. So I do not like this option.
I could also run a grommet, but still don't like the idea. Definitely a last resort.

This might be your ticket.

The receiver has a learning function, so it can be paired with a certain remote.

You legend.

Thank you for taking your time to search.
Honestly I was unsure what keywords to search for.

I have sent the guy a message to confirm it is possible.
