All the remotely-controlled light switches I've found are either touch-based or "doorbell-like" (i.e. they are not 2-state buttons, but buttons that can be pressed but after releasing they come back to their original state).

Do you know of any two-state, remotely-controlled light switches?

If not, any idea on how I could tackle creating them on my own?

INSTEON SwitchLincs arenít WiFi, but they can be operated by WiFi-connected smartphones and tablets using a phone app and an INSTEON Hub as a plug-in bridge between the INSTEON gear and your router. The SwitchLincs feature paddles with dual-momentary operation. The paddle rests in a center, neutral position. Tapping on the top of the paddle turns the attached load on, tapping the bottom turns it off, and holding brightens or dims dimmer units.
