What interface to be implemented for Smoke Detectors

Wich interface or controller to be used for Smoke Detectors

Alexa.EventDetectionSensor Interface seems to be only used for cameras

Alexa.ContactSensor Interface seems to be only used for surfaces like windows or doors

Alexa.SecurityPanelController Interface only seems to be used for arming and disarming alarms.
It wouldn't make sense to disarm a smoke detector alarms at all.

So how to tell alexa there are multiple smoke detectors and how do the detection events of single smoke detectors tell Alexa "there is fire in the living room"?


Best Regards

Hello @Roland Heumesser

Currently we don't have any interface specific to smoke detectors. I will suggest to put this to our ideaspace here.
