Indigo control of 12VDC lighting?

I want to add some 12VDC lights to my deck. I understand this will require a transformer. I also want to be able to use Indigo to control and dim these lights but not sure how that works. Can I use standard Insteon outlets and keypads to control the power to the transformer to activate & dim those lights? That's what I would like but since I'm new to this I'm not sure where to learn about how to do this. Thank you for any direction or reading material you can provide.

You should look at Shelly devices.
They have led rgb drivers,
Switches that work at low voltages as well as 110, 220

And you have 2 plugins that can be used to integrate into indigo

I use Insteon receptacles in outdoor weatherproof boxes connected to standard 12v magnetic landscape lighting transformers.. This has worked well and has been very reliable, although I do not dim the landscape lights. The landscape lighting fixtures have LED bulbs. I used magnetic transformers, since then generate less line noise than electronic transformers,

You could also use the 8 Channel IP relay- it has a plugin and is relatively inexpensive, albeit you need an ethernet drop to wherever it goes. The Insteon IOLinc could also handle the 12VDC load from a transformer.
