    That's how I would do it. However, note that Alexa won't be able to control such a device. In your case it probably doesn't matter if you never want to override the status via voice command through Alexa. In my case I have a Location device with Home, Away, Vacation, Sleep. But with that I can't change the status via Alexa. So I also created individual Home, Away, Vacation and Sleep devices which I can control via Alexa and which then sets the Location device.

    Actually, as I write this, maybe I could just have created events, give it a voice command and then use that for Alexa. Hence I wouldn't need those additional 4 devices.
