IP ping AKA presence detection on Homey?

Considering getting a Homey device.

But before I do I need to know if it is easy and possible to set up a script(?) that pings local network devices and uses the retrieved status as a boolean.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated!

I’ve tried googling, but most discussions regarding this is many years old and, I suspect, outdated.

Not exactly cli ping, but it checks for online devices with fixed IP’s. So it pings :wink:
Very very easy imho.
F.I. give all your devices you want to ping a “family member name”, like printer, or tv, and get logs or notifications of your devices being online or offline while they can trigger flows individually :wink:
