How to set up sunrise simulator to start before Alexa alarm?


#1

I currently have two lamps currently connected to Levitron smart plug dimmers that I am trying to setup as a sunrise alarm clock. Currently, using a combination of IFTTT and Stringify, they trigger to start the fade up when my Alexa dot alarm goes off.

What I would really like is to be able to start the lights 30 minutes prior to the Alexa alarm, but I can’t seem to find a way to do that. I get up at different times each day, so I just tell Alexa when to set my alarm at night when going to bed.

Any suggestions? Is there anything out there that can query the Alexa alarm?
