How this module works?
Push buttons are simple type of digital input. When you press a button you actually close a circuit and let signals pass through. Single pressing a button is closing the circuit for a very short period of time and then opening it while double-tapping means rapidly repeating this process twice. Long-press or holding the button is closing the circuit for a bit longer before opening it.
You can program the Twin Button very easily with Codecraft to achieve more creative and challenging projects.
Connect modules together as shown below and see what happens when you press the button:
