Wireless switch recommendation

I have a long hall that only have one light switch on one end. I want to be able to control the light switch on the other end of the hall because there is a bedroom on that end as well. So, I need recommendation on which wireless light switch I should consider.

Here's what I've seen so far.
  1. LUTRON P-PKG1W-WH Caseta Wireless
  2. Lutron PJ2-3BRL-GWH-L01 Maestro Wireless Pico Remote Control
  3. Lutron CW-1-WH Claro Single-gang
  4. Lutron Pico-Fp-Adapt White Pico Faceplate Wallplate Adapter Wall Mount Kit

So, I would be spending around $100 just to have a wireless switch. Is this seem reasonable or way overpriced? What some other options?

The Lutron P-PKG1W-WH is a complete kit. Comes with everything needed.

The Skylink SK-8 is a little more streamlined and is not as complicated looking as the Lutron multi location remote. Amazon carries the SK-8 kit.

Just picked up a couple of Insteon devices to get power and switch to outdoor patio string lights,

They have remote sockets also!

The Lutron P-PKG1W-WH does not include the wall-mount plate for the Pico remote. That is why.

The kit comes with the remote but not the wall plate. You can just stick that remote to the wall the way it is or buy the mounting plate and decora plate.

It's nice that you can use it with a phone...but I think it's not very practical. I would never go to a dark room and then take out my smart phone, enter my PIN, find the app, launch the app, then turn on the light. Even with Alexa, it would still be not as convenient and quick as a stationery wall mount switch that is always at the same place every single time.
