    Do you plan to support additional triggers in Alexa to make use of the ambient light sensor?

    A simple solution may be to add
    3 motion sensors devices to Alexa for each physical motion sensor. One that triggers in any light, one only in dim light, one in bright light. That would then replicate all the scene options in your app.

    Another possibility is to allow triggering an Alexa routine from an action of a SwitchBot scene (this may cause less confusion from a UX point of view).
