Options to transmitt data?

 - IR? Requires line of sight (kindoff..). One way only...

 - 433MHz modules? Need two per modules... RX and TX. Bulky.

 - NRF type transceivers? Two way communication. Small. 

 - Bluetooth? Never used it. Seems ... complicated.

 - Zigbee. Never used it. Don't like it's name.
