Status monitor of ecolink+ open/close

i am looking for a way to get battery status from ST without using the app or website to verify that a sensor is working. the Aeotec sensors do this and we are able to verify that the sensors are alive and working even if there is no open/close activity by sending temp data every so often. the ecolink doesnt have the temp option so it only reports open/close. any help or insight is appreciated.
