We will be introducing a rotary dimmer (1.5"x1.2"x.8" or 38mmx31mmx20mm) with high beam bypass that might be a bit easier than having to program the dimming levels.

Nice John! Are you considering a display or scale so you know what settings you've selected?

Great idea John, Can't wait. I tried one from my heated clothing, but all it did was flash the lights and not dim too much

I assume it will be water proof?

1- Waterproof would be great
2- price ~$30 would be great
3- indicator would be great - but I'd rather have the $30 price tag
we can make little marks on the body and knobs to do 25% / 50% / 75%

Thanks for your business.
sorry I am going to show my lack of understanding could you give me an example of voltage signal. I thought the positive wire on my battery would be that.

That's the goal. Still being tested but looks good.

It will have a bluetooth as well and an i7 just in case you want to design the next one while riding.

Voltage signal is the source you want to measure. Your battery is a source, it will work fine with that connection. The red wire hooked up to switched power (power that comes on with the key) will have your meter on and off with the bike. If you want to hook both up to the same switched power, that is fine as well but it will likely show a reduced reading than when connected directly to the battery due to voltage loss from the oem wiring.

HEY I got it fixed and it was my fault as I figured. Guess you have to ground it properly. I used the existing wire harness that was from my current set of lights and the ground tied in on the way to the lights and I ended up not getting the input of the dimmer grounded. Being Grounded always helps. That sounds like something my dad would have said.

Embeded video is working fine.

Glad to hear you got the wiring straightened out.

FYI, the strobing seen in the video is not visible to the human eye.
