Easiest way is to connect manual button to ESP8266 with Supla and it will send proper command to your dimmer controller.

What are the other external controllers?

X10 technology uses a manually operated light switch that incorporates a receiver that can also except encoded signals over the power line.  Each switch uses a unique code. Different controllers  are used to send the signals. Some switches are able to report their state back over the line, some are not. But I am using the ESP8266 to control a  transmitter that sends the signals  to a RF receiver that sends the signal over the power line. The RF is a one way signal and cannot know the state of a manually operated switch.

Supra allows me to use Alexa voice to control these lights, but it is not sending an off command to a light that was turned on manually.

I am simply using zero "brightness" to equal an off command, anything over zero is on, and dimming level is set by "brightness".
