Is it possible to make a simple dimmer thats operated just with the flick of the regular wall switch on and off? just like what Philips sceneswitch bulb does?
My requirement is 100%, 50% and 10% brightness settings. These have to cycle each time I flick the switch on and off. There is no need for a time limit ( eg: like flick the switch withing 3 seconds to change the brightness mode). Also there is no need for memory to remember the brightness next time I turn the light on.
The light in question is a 12v 500mA Led panel. It uses an AC to DC driver so I guess I can install the dimmer between the DC out of that driver and the DC in of the led panel.
What all components will I need for this and how can I do it?
Thanks in advance.
Edit- Modes I want are going to be like this -Switch on -> 100% brightness -Switch off -Switch on -> 50% brightness -Switch off -Switch on -> 10% brightness -Switch off -process repeats
By 'memory' I meant that the dimmer doesn't have to remember my brightness preference each time I turn the light back on. Instead the dimmer can simply switch to the next mode.
