This section is for the enthusiasts that want to pimp their gateway or sensor with some nice extras like activity LEDs and an inclusion mode button.## Inclusion Mode Button
Inclusion mode, is a feature which allows you to inform the controller that you want to add new devices during a short period (60 seconds default) by pressing a physical button on your gateway. Note: This function might not be supported by all the MySensors compatible controllers. To enable this feature in your gateway, set the following defines in your sketch before including
// Enabled inclusion mode feature // Enables inclusion-mode button feature on the gateway device // Set which pin you have the inclusion button attached to // Set inclusion mode duration (in seconds)
Connect the push-button momentary-switch between GND and digital pin 3. Note: if using the ESP8266, use pin D1 (GPIO 5) instead of 3
## Radio Traffic LEDs
We support three LED feedback signals for radio activity - Read, Transmit, and Error. The Transmit LED is also used to provide visual feedback during active inclusion mode.

A good choice would be either a 2 or 3 mm green/yellow/red LEDs. You will also need 3 resistors in the range 270R-510R.
Each LED is connected by its anode (long leg) to +5V. The cathode (short leg) is connected through a resistor to one of the following digital pins of the Arduino:
To enable this feature, set the following defines in your sketch before including
// Set blinking period (in milliseconds)
