This is a set of capacitive touch buttons. Modules have 4, 8, and 16 buttons each.
Capacitive touch buttons can be triggered without actually touching them. When a finger comes within a close proximity to the button it will be triggered. The amount of distance through which the button works depends on the material type and thickness but the distance is small.
This is a great type of button to use for waterproofing, dust-proofing, or aesthetic reasons. It’s also very durable since there is no mechanical button movement.
These buttons are self locking. When they’re pressed they toggle and retain on and off digital states.
These buttons can be used with an Arduino. They could also be used on their own and control a larger load using a MOSFET or other transistor.
