Question Recently bought SAT+ now whats the deal with Ramp Timer?

I just bought a Current Satellite + and now I see the Ramp Timer! but why wasn't this feature built in?!? I want the sunrise/sunset effect so bad!! I have read the disclaimers so Im just trying to double check:

If I use the Ramp Timer with my SAT+
- I cant use the Dual or Pro models of the Ramp Timer
- I cant use the dynamic effects of the SAT+
- I cant use any custom color settings
- I will stick to Preset colors only

I basically stick to the Orange/65000k or Yellow/Full Spectrum for my plants, but I don't want my fish bugging out by the light snapping on/off every day, so this Ramp Timer seems amazing but... here is my question: I sometimes like dimming my SAT+ at night, this is why I bought the SAT+ was to turn the brightness down once in awhile... but, will dimming effect the Ramp Timer?? I would love for it to go back to full brightness in the morning, if I forget I had it dimmed, or would this cause it to strobe out?
