I am completely new to Raspberry Pi and electronics so please forgive my lack of knowledge but I am trying really hard to learn something new. I have tried searching the forum but things said in any post soon confused me :lol:
I am looking to create a "magic mirror" using magic mirror 2. I plan to buy this kit https://thepihut.com/collections/raspberry-pi-kits-and-bundles/products/raspberry-pi-starter-kit?variant=20336446079038 and add 2 of these buttons https://thepihut.com/products/rugged-metal-pushbutton-with-red-led-ring?variant=27740444561, 1 for power/shutdown and the other to dim the display/hide modules.
Firstly if I have understood correctly the buttons on their own would both need connecting to it's own GPIO pin (any available) and GND pin to function?
Assuming the above is correct what I don't understand is the LED side of things. Where and how do I connect these? Do I need a resistor? I would like these to be illuminated at all times even when switched off if possible (I don't think it is). I'm not interested in flickering when it boots or anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and any advice on where to start learning would be amazing!
