Another one I find extremely useful is I get a notification if the garage door has been left open for 10 mins. This has saved me on a number of occasions when we have rushed out the door and forgotten to shut the door. I am now using the Smart NORA integration with NodeRED which lets me add actions to my notifications, so now I get a "The garage door is still open" notification and a little "Close" action at the bottom I can click to instantly close the door.
How are you detecting if the door is open or closed? I have the doors tied in to HA with a Shelly 1 for open / close, but haven't sorted out knowing the state of the door at any one time yet.

Lights, always do the switch not the bulbs, gives you more options for fittings and the switches still work as expected
I've got a little bit set up in HA, with regards to automation.
If I could only keep one thing it would be the robot vacuum. It's just the best by far.
