Another module of my alarm interface is done. I picked up a 3×4 matrix keypad from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/419) But couldn’t find any good python code examples for it’s use. I was able to find a few examples that lead me down the right path in terms of scanning rows first as inputs and then swaping pins to scan the columns. I wrote two libraries, the first just uses 7 of the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins then I also wrote one that works for the MCP23008 chip since I’m really in a mode of saving pins when I can 🙂 Then also just wrote a demo script to show calling the libraries and their use.

Here is the code as it stands now, I have some ideas on how to change it to be better but this is fully working for now.
