Honeywell Dimmer 39351 Questions

Good evening!

So I’ve added a Honeywell Dimmer and done the basic config but I have a few beginner questions. It appears as a light entity, not a switch. Is that normal?

I can’t seem to get a lovelace card setup to allow me to control the dim level via a slider or anything. It either turns on or off.

Also I’m using the Cloud Connect for Alexa integration and I’ve exposed the switch but alexa only can turn it on and off as well.

This is my first Dimmer so I’m super confused.

Thank you in advance!
