The ability to dim a ceiling fan with a light through integrations like Alexa and Google requires the fan with the light to be able to increase or decrease the light intensity without looking at it to stop at the desired level.
For an integration with Bond products to allow light dimming through the integration, Bond and the integration need to know if the light intensity is being increased or decreased.
Not able to dim through integration
When using the remote or Bond, if you need to look at the fanlights to stop at the desired level of brightness, then it cannot be dimmed via voice commands. This means that the remote requires a press and hold to dim the lights and the Bond/integration cannot track the level of brightness. The image below is an example of how this type of light control looks in the Bond Home application.
