Automation - Bluetooth presence

Example config.json:

{
  "accessories": [
    {
      "accessory": "AutomationBluetoothPresence",
      "name": "Dad's iTag",
      "deviceId": "65504c9b6e5441f8927bbd768e455d4f",
      "gracePeriod": 600
    }
  ]
}

This accessory will create a motion sensor linked with a Bluetooth device.

When the device is found, the motion sensor is triggered. When the device is not seen for longer than gracePeriod, the motion sensor will stop detecting movement.

The plugin will show the history history in the Elgato's Eve app.
