I have experienced this minor issue which requires someone to exit the coach and walk through the dark building to turn on the lights before backing in. I do however have motion floods on the outside. Be sure to check the direction of these so they do not "blind" you when trying to navigate the door at night.
Consider adding Z-Wave system to your garage and house. Nice in that you can remotely control lights in both places from anywhere in the world.
In addition everyone should always run at least a 1 1/4", 1 1/2" or even 2" conduit from their house to a remote garage. The reason for the larger conduit is to make pulling much easier and don't forget to always leave a pull rope so you never have to fish one again. This way you can pull low voltage circuits such as phones and ethernet cables and even coax cables to run dish, direct or cable between them. Since it's for low voltage only you don't have to do really deep unless you need to get below the frost line.
Wireless is great but when running between buildings with some distance between them hardwire is king. This way you can connect a remote access point in the garage from your wireless router in the house and have solid Internet in the garage.
