Does anyone know how I can use a Sengled Element smart bulb as an option for sensor?
Here’s my situation:
The hall bathroom in our house doesn’t have a window in it, so you need to turn on the light to use it. We don’t need a smart switch or bulb in there but I would like to be able to see if someone is using the bathroom without having a motion sensor. Right now I have a Sengled Element smart bulb as one of the 3 bulbs in the light fixture. I still use the regular switch to turn on and off the lights. If I look at the SmartThings app and the bulb is on then I know someone is in there. If it says “unavailable”, then I know nobody is using it.
So my question is: Is there a way (using a device handler or something) to make the device show up as “occupied” when the bulb is available, and “unoccupied” when the bulb is unavailable? As opposed to “on” and “unavailable”.
