A couple of circuits here that should help


For a heater you can count zero crossings and switch the element
on/off for whole cycles (not suitable for lights, too flashy). The closer
to the z-c point you turn the element's power on/off the less chance
of creating EMI. For setting the power output, may I suggest


or perhaps use an IR system built around ideas on the first page or
DIP switches. The light chaser here


uses a rotary panel switch diode-ANDed to make a 4-bit BCD

Take your pick
