I noticed the behavior of the built in camera for the Echo Show and Dot and realized that there is a missed opportunity for Amazon to allow this camera to be used as a built-in device motion sensor and ambient light level sensor.
If Amazon were to allow the camera to provide a status of "Motion Detected" and "Ambient Light Level 1 to 100" the user could then use these as triggers for routines. IE:
Ambient Light Level above [1 to 100]
Turn on [light]
Then after set time if Motion has not been detected (five minutes or whatever) shut off light.
Also this camera could be used for security too. If motion detected send a notification to my phone yadda yadda yadda.... I think there is potential here without the need to do anything more than a firmware update to open this camera up to the user for routines.
I don't know where to post this so I'm putting it under the Help Section. Hope someone from Amazon sees this post and passes it along to the Echo team for consideration.
