    I use a motion detector that is part of my ELK-M1 alarm system, connected to HS4. When it sees motion in the Kitchen, it uses Tasker to send a notification to the tablet in my kitchen that uses tasker to turn on the screen.

    Years ago used the locally present wired occupancy sensor or PIR to enable the wall mounted Homeseer touchscreen. Today the wired Omnitouch screens are off unless I touch them and the Homeseer tabletop touchscreens are in screen saver mode (flip clock). Been using Windows touch screens with Jon00's remote control management utility.

    In house #2 implementing all Tasmota and MQTT stuff. Today you can create a tiny ESP Tasmota device with a small PIR in it and use MQTT for your stuff very easily.

    Touch interface wakeup on presence

    I have an ecobee thermostat and like how it is blank unless I get close to it and would like to know is something exists which replicates this and is a dedicated controller of some sort. It could run HSTouch, z-wave, send MQTT messages, etc. I am not looking for something such as the Google displays which require some interaction to get to controls. I want it to be as easy as walking to a light switch, but having customizable interaction. Not looking for physical buttons.

    I think I could make something and already have code to customize what an Arduino does when physical buttons are pressed. It uses MQTT to redefine "scenes" run from various momentary switches. These scenes can do a combination of controlling relays and sending MQTT messages. I could change this up to create a touch version but am hoping for an off the shelf unit.

    Any ideas?
