I have a Kal inspired control panel built that has been working great. The one thing I wish I had was a way to turn the wort pump on and off while standing away from the panel, such as when filling up fermenters. Has anyone wired in an on off remote to their wort pump switch? I think that would solve my problem.

Check out the bcs 460. It has a web interface for the micro controller.

Watch episode #44 of Brewing TV. One of the blokes has a remote for his pumps.

Here you go http://www.amazon.com/Woods-13569-Wi...5191414&sr=8-1

You could control 3 separate pumps. Just plug the receiver box into the wall and the pumps, lights, ect. into the receiver box.

Is there anything smaller that I'd be able to wire into my control panel?

How about a foot switch - wire it in parallel with the switch contact so either can turn it on. Put the foot switch on a cord and place it where you need it.

The receivers that I listed are very small once you take them out of the plastic cases. You could easily (depending on how much space you've got in your CP) wire them inline to your outlets to have a nice clean look to everything.
