I am looking for some cheap one or two button remote controller( like a car key-chain thing).
the remote controller must send a signal that i can capture in java(os Ubuntu). Someone who knows if these things exists and where that i can find them. Even good keywords to search google are highly appreciated.
thx in advance Bert

Yes , but it is for ir, the remote i search would have to be rf or bluetooth.
i have to be able to send one signal( button push) from a remote that's in my pocket and this within a range of let say 30-50 feet( 10-15 m).
I with ir the sender and receiver led has to be visible and more or less in-line.

the device i look is like a car remote door opener, 1 push-> doors open ( 1 push 1->command), even from within pockets or from behind a door if the range is not that far.

Maybe there are other solutions to achieve this but i don't know any
So any info is appreciated

I already have a RF keyboard with mouse ( logitech mk 300) so if someone knows a way to get the signals from this receiver i only need the sender thus the onebutton rf remote
