    First a quick demo of wiring the Floor Mat Switch using a battery and LED bar lights. All we are doing is using the floor mat switch to complete the circuit and turn on both the buzzer and light when it's stepped on.

    Another quicky demo just showing the use of the Floor Mat Switch. We hooked it up to a digital input on a Phidget 8/8/8 and wrote a quick program in free Visual Studio Express to make an alarm.
