Same project, different changes...

A while back I did this project for my daughter, i can't find the old forum but I'll tell you a little about it. My daughter has this dark playhouse/shed,so I decided to install a window that's controlled by a arduino and a 12v DC motor... Long story short I'm wondering if I could swap out the magnetic reeds for some standard push buttons, without changing the code/program?

The old forum was under this same username. The forum was titled Lacking Knowledge.

The original thread was here

Yes you can swap them, but they are not as reliable and can damage the button if the motor fails to stop.
