Bluetooth shutter button for Raspberry Pi Camera Answered

Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to coding on a raspberry pi and would like some help with an issue I am having.

I am currently using a raspberry pi to view a live preview of the pi cam directly onto a screen. I would like to link the Pi to a Bluetooth button such as the flic button, so that when pressed, it would take an image using a python script. I have installed the flic SDK for Linux and have detected and connected to the button to view it's MAC address. I am unsure of how to proceed after this to allow the button to interact with a python script, so my question is what is the best way to proceed to do what i'm trying to achieve?. Any help would be much appreciated.
