Automation only to reduce lights that are already on

Automation only to reduce lights that are already on

I have some new decorative lights that look great, but look too bright as the sun goes down. I’d like to set up an automation to dim them at sunset, but I don’t want them to turn on if they’re off (for example, if I’m watching a movie and I want it to be dark or if I’m not home and I have all the lights off), I just want to fade if they are already lit. This is possible because I’ve tried all sorts of different things with Shortcuts and the home app and it can’t seem to work.
