Abstract A press switch comprises an insulating substrate with two conductive zones suitable for triggering first and second functions, respectively. The first zone has at least two portions that are electrically insulated from each other. A spring has two contact zones, one of which includes at least two regions that are electrically interconnected and suitable for making contact with respective portions. In a rest position, the spring makes contact with at least part of the first conductive zone, and no function is performed. In a first actuated position, a first amount of pressure applied to the spring causes it to make full contact with the first conductive zone, thereby causing the first function to be performed. In a second actuated position, a second amount of pressure causes contact to be made by each contact zone with the respective conductive zone, and the said function is performed.
