Make it go from dim to bright

I need to run a light (incandescent) from a 24 hour type timer such that when the timer turns the light on it gradually proceeds from low intensity to high intensity through probably a second circuit. Any ideas? Thanks

If you prefer standart products, you can use a micro PLC with PWM output driving an SSR. Second alternative is to use a chopper that accepts analog input and design an integrator circuit (e.g. constant current source feeding a capacitor) for its input. Hakan Ozevin
