This actually is HA related... :)

I'm looking for recommendations for a simple, cheap, auto-fading dimmer
con=
troller...

It can be mains or low voltage, I don't really mind either
It needs to continuously fade-on/fade-off a bulb for a finite & set
period =
of time & then stop
Ideally the fade speed should be adjustable
Ideally the dimmer brightness should be adjustable
Ideally the run-time of the fade-on/fade-off cycle should be adjustable

This is for a project I'm about to undertake. It's intended to be an
embedd=
ed light, so it really does want to be a simple circuit/device that can be
=
installed, configured, & then forgotten.
I do already have a few possibilities to investigate, but I'd appreciate
an=
y pointers, as its difficult to know if I've picked the best search
terms..=
.. :)

Anything up to about =A330 -ish would be fine. I've no problem if it's
base=
d on a well-known fruit based microcontroller... :)

TIA

Paul G.
