    I've been running a jffs script for my SmartThings presence using WiFi. It's been working great. Recently, with Merlin's extraordinary work with AIMesh, I decided to setup my AIMesh Network.

    The SmartThings WiFi Presence script is from https://community.smartthings.com/t/release-asuswrt-wifi-presence/37802/1

    Whenever my cell phone connects to the node, my SmartThings presence changes to Not Present. Obviously, the jffs script is not running on the node.

    My question is... how do I run a jffs script on the AIMesh node?

    Run all the nodes on the latest Merlin rather than stock and they will all have JFFS script capability too.
    Not sure how that plugin will react to multiple instances tho.
    I just use the SmartThings app built in presence tracking ability and the Life360 app as well.

    I am running Merlin on all my Asus routers.

    The SmartThings app doesn't update presence quick enough and neither does the Life360 app. By the time I get to the door, it's still locked. The WiFi Presence script worked amazingly though. That is why I am trying to figure out how to run jffs scripts on the node. I'm hoping this will solve the "not present" issue.
