Non hue Led strip sunrise wake up

Just paid for the app & it’s doing exactly what I wanted it to do perfectly so thanks.

I’m now trying to set up a sunrise automation every week day morning with a non hue LED COB strip connected to a Zigbee controller connected through a hue bridge. I have this working via the Alexa app but it’s very drawn out & a pain if I want to disable it. Also I have to remember to dim the led strip each night (have set another automation for this) otherwise I get a full bright white wake up before it then dims to 1%warm to start the sunrise automation.
Many thanks.
