Fictitious equipment

I would like to create an alarm system with switchbot motion sensors and cameras but when an intrusion has been revealed there is no way to use (e.g. Alexa) to turn on the lights or a siren. The idea is to create fictitious equipment which the status can be set by an automation. So I can use the switchbot app "automation" to generate a trigger for Alexa. Second suggestion is the possibility to have "variables" in the automation system for example: when I push the button on the remote I want to turn on the surveillance mode (variable). Then if "surveillance mode" is "on" and motion sensor detect something then "Alarm on" with this "alarm on" visible by Alexa routines as a trigger.
