Use orientation sensor to set Ambience

It would be useful to use any built-in orientation sensor and/or timer/clock to set an ambience.

For example, placing the device screen-down for 15 seconds between the hours of 0900 and 1700 automatically invokes the silent ambience; and turning it over so that it is screen-up for more than 15 seconds invokes a standard noisy ambience. There are other possibilities.

Native application Situations is great for such purposes.

Thank you for the suggestion.

The 'Situations' Sailfish-native app has the right conceptual basis, but as far as I can see (I have downloaded it and checked), does not give the option of detecting the device orientation (screen-up or screen-down), so explicitly does not provide the features I asked for in the feature request.

If you are to provide useful answers, please say explicitly if your suggested answer meets the requirements, rather than leaving it to the requester to find it out. Situations is not 'great for such purposes' as it does not do what I asked for: detect orientation.
