I think MQTT is the best way to acheive this. I havent used a micro bit, but I found some examples showing how to connect to an MQTT broker in a quick search. USe the MQTT doc to find all the appropriate settings.
Use MQTT subscribe to have the device recieve updates sent to the channel, and change the state of the light accordingly.
Use MQTT publish to set the value of the channel to On or OFF.
You can also use the TalkBack API to achieve this functionality.
