I've messed with adruino nano's and got led strips running, also hooked up a potentiometer to make leds light up at a pull of a lever. So here's my isssue. I am building a star trek transporter room in my basement. Now I bought a soft pot membrane potentiometer. I need it to control a Digital Dimmer Module AC Dimmer. and also light up leds as i push up on it..and maybe play the transporter sound. I'm a linux admin, but a noob at adruino's. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I added a picture of the room. This will be for the lights on the bottom to fade bright, then dim again.
