Open/closed door detection

Open/closed door detection

I have set my robot to clean the house daily. Because I don't need every room cleaned, i just close the doors of the rooms that don't need cleaning.

If I come home, I sometimes want the robot to clean a room, which had a closed door during the sceduled full house cleaning. But now I can't send the robot to this room via room cleaning mode, because it has updated the map and detected a wall at the location of the door. It can't calculate a path to this room. Another problem is, that the robot tries to reach the charging station, if I move it manually to a room, close the door and start room cleaning for this room. It sometimes spends minutes in front of the closed door before it gives up and says, that it can't reach the charging station.

It would be nice, if you could mark the locations of the doors via the map edit feature. When navigating between rooms, the robot should always check the status of the doors and check if it can reach it's destination through that door.
