So you could easily do this with a Raspberry Pi with a Bluetooth module a relay, and a cell phone with Bluetooth built into your gauntlet. I'm thinking about doing this to control the light on the side of my bucket. As for controlling it with switches on your gauntlet, a modified garage door opener would probably do the trick... although I would have to research a cheap receiver thats compatible with multiple relays.
