True. But now we have PIC devices and modules.
There are module kits designed for Halogens available by Velleman.
You buy this:
followed by the required modules:
at around $100-$150 USA for a kit. Not too expensive.
The K8029 appears to be capable of being programmed to have a long dim
period from 1min to 70mins.
Take a look at the PDFs. Its got lots of beginner building instructions.
The K8006 allows 5 channels of lighting, each can be programmed to switch
on/off at certain times or be dimmed with the appropriate module.
Put a case around it and you're laughing.
