Is it possible to discover known, but idle smartphones?

I'm working on a project to use a smartphone as a tag and adjust the surroundings when the tag is within reach of the Kismet monitor.

Currently I use Kismet's lasttime variable as a threshold to determine if a device is still around. Unfortunately when a smartphones goes idle it becomes radio silent and my lasttime variable useless.

So is there a workaround without modifying the smartphone or the APs?

- The smartphone is connected to a known SSID.
- Root access to the APs
- Single AP in monitor mode running Kismet
- The smartphone's MAC address is known.
