If you are only doing a few devices I would buy a Zigbee radio (like the MaxStream XBee).
Zigbee is low power low bandwidth protocol in ISM band. To communicate with an XBee
you open terminal connection and send ASCII string with commands or data.

I have developed some boards at www.wiblocks.com.

Checkout O'Reilly's "Making Things Talks" for some other options.
