Solutions to the Exercise 3: Switches

Exercise 1:

This is very similar to switching a LED on or off. Again a single GPIO line is used. This time however the pin in programmed as input and we can add a pullup or pulldown resistor: _PB_PIN = 17
pushButton = Pin(_PB_PIN,Pin.IN,Pin.PULL_UP)  

Once the pushButton pin is defined we can get its current state with: state = pushButton.value()

Exercise 2:

The MicroPython documentation includes a chapter on writing interrupt service routines

http://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/reference/isr_rules.html

How to do this with GPIO lines is described in

http://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/esp8266/tutorial/pins.html

When using interrupts you may run into problems with bouncing of mechanical switches. The transition is not a single clear cut step function but may flip back and forth. Have a look at http://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/pyboard/tutorial/debounce.html for an explanation on how to eliminate this problem (software debounce algorithm).

Exercise 3:

Nothing much to be said here. Have a look at the solution:

Exercise 4:

There is no difference in programming between a mechanical and a PIR switch. Just the GPIO line on which the switch is connected must be adapted.
