EcoDimmer: New hardwired/DC LED lighting for DIYs

Hello everyone,
My name is Mark Gilmore, and I am the owner/president of Omnipotence Software.
We have been developing automation software since 1990, our primary product being "ECS"
(http://OmnipotenceSoftware.com/wpr.htm).

We have been closely following the trend towards LED lighting for a few years now.
But when we looked for systems that could be automated, we found a void in the market.
So we decided to make our own:
Our "EcoDimmer" controls up to 16 low-wattage (DC) lights or appliances with push-buttons,
keypads, and/or automation software (like ECS).
To our knowledge, this is the only direct-wired/DC lighting system that can be automated.

The EcoDimmer is intended for installers and DIYs.
It does not include buttons, lighting, or the dimmer's power supply, as these will vary
greatly for different applications. So with the exception of the optional/pre-installed keypad,
these must be purchased separately and wired to the unit. But as only 2 connections are required for each, anyone can perform this task with a screwdriver and a knife.

For further details, please see http://OmnipotenceSoftware.com/wpe.htm.
We welcome any feedback (esp as this is a new product) !

Regards,
Mark Gilmore
