allow sunrise/sunset daytime and night time for routines
I would like to be able to trigger a routine at sunrise/sunset.
I would also like to have the time of an action be night time or day time based on my homes location. ie Door bell turn on an outside light only at night time.
Yes this would be useful on the routine when to comes to set the "active between" you could choose sunrise or sunset as the start or end time.

It will be good to have Alexa set alarms for sunrise/sunset without having to use Routines.
Users should be able to say:
Alexa, set an alarm at Sunset.
Alexa, wake me up at sunrise.
This would most certainly be very VERY helpful. See, at this time you can create a routine and the trigger can be a Schedule, and that schedule allows sunset/sunrise. However If the trigger is something else (like let's say motion), then the "when" part only allows fixed clock schedule - not sunrise/sunset. I have been waiting for this for a very long time now actually.

This should be possible in every schedule of a routine.

I would like this functionality whenever "when" can be configured not just when setting a scheduled routine
