I have checked it, it seems lots of pre-programmed dash buttons(I guess not customizable) available with $5 price. I have also found aws iot button which probably allows a customization but the price is $20 and unfortunately, it does not ship to Turkey (I live in Turkey).
This project works on the mobile device. My project aims for elder people which do not have a smartphone or they will use a button in a situation where they can't reach the mobile device. If I can find a small button, they can carry it easily or can attach to their clothes.B.Goode wrote: Blue Dot for an Android 'phone?

I don't have experience of doing it myself, but there are many blog posts suggesting how to 'hack' pre-programmed buttons.it seems lots of pre-programmed dash buttons(I guess not customizable) available with $5 price.
Thanks for the information. I didn't have a much information about amazon dash button before, I checked the web and yes there are numerous blog posts about hacking dash button. I will look through them.B.Goode wrote:I don't have experience of doing it myself, but there are many blog posts suggesting how to 'hack' pre-programmed buttons.it seems lots of pre-programmed dash buttons(I guess not customizable) available with $5 price.
If you are able to detect that a signal has been sent in response to the button being activated, does it matter if the message is decoded as "Order more washing powder"? Your own code does not need to implement that order.
Few seconds delay is not important as long as it will send a signal to the pi.

There is an unavoidable few second delay between when you press it and when the other end (i.e., the Pi) picks up on it. Still, if you can live with that, it's not bad.

Makes good sense for ordering washing powder or cat food, but not good for frequent use like a light switch.
Really expensive device for my purpose. Thanks for the suggestion, I think I need to research more.epoch1970 wrote: (My favorite is EnOcean's wireless/battery-less button -a minuscule dynamo powering a short-range radio device. Interesting technology, but not in the price range you've stated. A certain learning curve, as well.)
