    Wireless dimmers are available in the hardware store. I definitely wouldn't recommend building one when you can buy one so easily.

    For the software, take a look at Eagle and DipTrace. They don't really do the design - that's what you do - but they handle the drawing chores.

    And welcome to the forums!
