Designing and Prototyping a Smart Dimmer

Designing and Prototyping a Smart Dimmer

The final prototype was successfully made and tested. As was expected, it could be used for dimming light loads from LED to incandescent up to 500w from 0 to 100%. It could be controlled or scheduled by an app or manual control push on push off or push and hold to dim up or down. The use was also able to group lights, set timers, etc. with the app.
The product could also be used to control other devices remotely like a 2-way non-wired control, or a dimming fan base up to 500w, etc.
