Pulsating LED Using a 555 Timer and Potentiometers

In this instructable, we will be showing you how to construct a LED Dimmer circuit that runs on an adjustable timed loop using a potentiometer, a 555 timer and other basic circuit components. We first obtained the idea for this project from another instructable that made an LED strip controlled by a dimmer switch, found here: https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Strip-Control-With-Dimmer-and-Audio-Pulsing-Ci/. This project was incredibly helpful in understanding how the potentiometer could work as a dimmer switch. For our purposes, however, we want to set up the potentiometer as a timer switch that automatically controls the length of time it takes for the LED strip to fade in and out. Hope you find this helpful!”
