switches!?

by Thance on Wed Aug 23, 2017 6:31 pm

Greetings,

I'm working on a project, and I need a switch that when the cabinet door opens the strip of led lights inside will turn on. Suggestions?

Thanks
Travis

I saw these, but the button when not pressed is an open circuit right? Is there a way to change that. My thinking is if the door is closed on the button that would close the circuit turning the lights on when the door is closed. I want the lights to come on when the door opens. If however, I can change the button how is that done?

That particular switch is closed when the door is closed. There are models available that work the opposite way, but we do not carry them in the store. If you check with sites specializing in home security systems, you should be able to find some that work the way you want.

These https://www.adafruit.com/product/819 or these https://www.adafruit.com/product/817 should work but we are out at the moment. They can be purchased from other sources and are fairly common.
