  • Big Red Button

    I have a big red button like this that I'm wanting to connect with HomeSeer to trigger an event.

    Is there a way with an Arduino that I can trigger an event when the circuit is closed (button pressed)?

    Yes, this is the kind of think the Arduino is used for. It takes contact closure in and out of Homeseer devices and you can act on this in events.

    If you need any more help or info then get in touch.

      Sure.
      1. Connect the switch between an Arduino pin and ground
      2. Assign that pin as an input in the Arduino configuration
      3. Create an Event with the trigger "Arduino pin changes and becomes Closed"
      4. Execute the desired actions in the Event
