You can do it with SharpTools for Android + Tasker. The high level steps:

  1. Setup a SHM subscription in SharpTools
  2. Create a SHM Status Changed event profile in Tasker
  3. Update a widget using the %st_shm variable in the Tasker profile

The following article shows some details on how you might do this to build a custom widget for a Thing.

The concepts are similar, so I figured it may be helpful. Also feel free to tag me here or on https://community.sharptools.io and I would be happy to help. :smile:
