1) Introduction

A button or “momentary switch” is perfect for projects that require user input, or any place you need to detect a change in device state. This example uses a simple tactile switch however the very same circuit can be used with a pressure mat to detect someone walking into a room, or with a microswitch to monitor when a door opens or with a passive infrared sensor to respond to motion. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through wiring up a simple button to your XBee Wi-Fi so that its current state can be seen in a online application from anywhere in the world.
