I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W and I wanted to send a signal to the pi zero so I can trigger a task. I am a Software Engineer and I believe I can handle software parts.
I am trying to find a proper Bluetooth or Wifi device(just button) so when I press the button, something will happen on my Raspberry Pi. I first searched Bluetooth devices, beacons but could not be sure about any product.

this link discusses a Bluetooth device and author managed to used it. I wonder if anyone also tried something like this in this post.
Also, I found another topic in the forum: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=82430
My project looks similar within this topic and there is a suggestion about using RF solution which I have no idea about it. Adafruit RF remote control given as an example which has $6,95 price.
There are wireless Bluetooth projects, one example is https://flic.io/
but generally, these come with their mobile app which I believe increase their price relatively high. This is $35 for one button and I am not sure if I can do custom things with this.
Basically, I am thinking to use some Bluetooth or Wifi or any other technology button that I can send a signal to raspberry pie when I clicked the button. I am looking for cheap and programmable solutions. Would be glad if anyone can give me a suggestion. Thanks.
