    Do you plan to support additional triggers in Alexa to make use of the motion /ambient sensor / enter / exit?

    A simple solution may be to add
    an additional contact sensor device to Alexa for enter/exit.

    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 and gives you total control of the device triggers)
