I'd like to get your input on features to include in the firmware and software.

Features on my list now:
  • delayed turn on (turn on circuit so many seconds after ignition is turned on)
  • delayed turn off (turn off circuit so many seconds after ignition is turned off)
  • live current consumption by channel and overall
  • user set over current shut off (AKA software circuit breaker)
  • system voltage measurement
  • adjustable PWM dimming on all 8 channels
  • high side switching
  • 4 input signal wires that can be used to trigger changes to circuit condition (on,off,dim level, etc)
  • all features programmable via smartphone with bluetooth
  • 100A max current
Allowing me to control the PWM dimming while the bike is off (and a preset on my smart phone) would be cool.

For example...

When I get home at night, I'd like the LED driving lights to stay on for an extra 60 seconds, so I can see when I unlock the garage door.

Let's say I'm camping, and need light. I'd like to run the LEDs at 15% to set up my tent, without running the bike.
