Internet Button: push my buttons (tutorial #3)


Assign a different action to each button.

Particle released a C++ library that handles much of the interaction with the Internet Button hardware components. That lib is publicly available on GitHub and includes a bunch of useful examples. To check if a button was pressed becomes as easy as buttonOn(led_number).

First you need to include that library:

  1. Go to Particle GitHub.
  2. Download InternetButton.cpp and InternetButton.h files.
  3. Move them to a folder on your project’s repo (I used a libs folder).
  4. Add at the top of your .ino file this line #include "InternetButton.h".

Below is the code I used to click a button and turn a led on.

void loop(){
    if(b.allButtonsOff()) {
    // When you click a button it lights on the respective led
    else if(b.buttonOn(1)){
        b.ledOn(1, 255, 255, 255);
        b.ledOn(11, 255, 255, 255);
    else if(b.buttonOn(2)){
        b.ledOn(3, 255, 255, 255);
    else if(b.buttonOn(3)){
        b.ledOn(6, 255, 255, 255);
    else if(b.buttonOn(4)){
        b.ledOn(9, 255, 255, 255);
