wireless lights

If I get different brands of wireless lights, do they operate on different frequencies, or will all of them turn on using a single remote?

We need to light several rooms, but not all at once, so we are looking at 3-5 general civilian wireless lights. But we really don't need more than one on at a time, and more could be annoying. This is a DIY project with non-tech people.

Absolute crapshot. There's nothing restricting them to the same operating frequencies, and so I expect them to be all over the Bluetooth spectrum. Ideally, each would have its own encoding, so there's no chance of crosstalk (or a neighbor's garage door opener turning on/off your lights), and that's probably true...

The good news is: if you buy them locally, you can always return one if you find a conflict.
