Can I use a Reed Switch to control Blinky Tape?

Hello, Is it safe/ easily done to connect a Reed Switch such as this one: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10601 as on/off button for Blinky Tape?

  • Hi! It's a little tricky to add a reed switch, since it involves soldering to a pretty small connector. The easiest way to go about it is to use the soldering iron to remove the switch that's currently attached to the BlinkyTape, and then solder the reed switch in its place.
  • Just want to note how helpful the change that was made to the button on the new board is. How there are only two larger solder pads for the button. Much easier to access, to wire larger pushbuttons for the props I make. Exactly what It needed!
