Well technically that’s a gimmick, because they make motion-control lights that do this that are much simpler and more reliable…
But that could probably give you the answer you need though… you could have a motion sensor in “popular” rooms, and if you exit the beacon range it would only shut off the lights after motion stops. Then again if you’re going to go that route, you don’t really need the beacons for presence at all.
You could also have a “party mode” where you would ignore the whole beacon routine until you’re back to solo mode or something.
This is probably easy enough to do if you just keep track of the current state / mode. So you would only open the gate automatically if you are in “away” mode, and doing so puts you into “home” mode, or something similar.
