Wireup to GPIO like so with Hardware pull down resistor ( or look at wiring to to GPIO ports over 8 as these start on pull down ) 

On Raspberry Pi

sudo nano /boot/config.txt

add the below to the end

dtoverlay=w1-gpio,gpiopin=4

Reboot PI ( sudo reboot ) 

Add the following ( blank OWFS path ) 

 

It shoud appear in Devices Automatically

Recently received my first Raspberry Pie and needed to get input sensors, especially a reed switch and also testing a Hall Effect Sensor

Reed Switch with Hardware Pull Down ( Resistors ) 

What inputs can I use with my Raspberry Pi? Part 1 - Switches and  logic-level sensors

On the Pie this looks like

 

How To Use GPIO on the Raspberry Pi with C++

Reed Switch with Internal Pull Down Resistor 

see below , gpios 0-8 are pulled high, the rest are pulled low. They are all inputs. Those initial power on states can not be changed – it’s wired into the SoC. So if you are wanting to use below make sure you use GPIO over 8 so it can withstand a reboot

Hall Effect Sensor with Hardware Pull Down ( Resistors ) 

This has three pins ( Extra Digital Out )  so needs to be Wired differently , we just need to protect the GPIO Pins

 

 

I used GPIO’s 4,5,6

#enables GPIO 4
echo 4 > /sys/class/gpio/export

#marks 4 as input ( not Output )
sudo echo in > /sys/class/gpio/gpio4/direction

#Configure the gpios to trigger an interrupt on both edge ( An edge is the name of a transition from HIGH to LOW (falling edge) ) – LOW to HIGH (rising edge).
echo both > /sys/class/gpio/gpio4/edge

#ActiveType constant to select active high, which means that logical true corresponds with high voltage.  active low, which means that logical true corresponds with low voltage.  0 (false) or 1 (true)

echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio4/active_low

How to read the current value of GPIO

cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio4/value

raspi-gpio get 4

How to set GPIO Pull Down 

On Boot gpios 0-8 are pulled high, the rest are pulled low. They are all inputs. Those initial power on states can not be changed – it’s wired into the SoC

raspi-gpio set 4 pd

pu set GPIO in-pad pull up
pd set GPIO pin-pad pull down
