Alexa and other smart speakers (media_player) announce your doors/windows opening and closing. Comes in handy specially for garage doors or side/main exits for homes and shops where you need to stay informed of any changes. Trust me, it's a secured feeling to know the status of your garage, main/side exits.
Ever since we've set this up in our home, we don't think we can do without it now. Your home suddenly gets a voice, something like Jarvis ... Awesome!

This app wouldn't be possible without the amazing work done by the developers and community at Home Assistant
A very special thanks to Keaton Taylor and Alan Tse whose work on Alexa Media Player was the basis of my inspiration and my work to code all the above listed apps!
