What I mean is create a virtual on/off button tile (in the SmartThings IDE) then set up a SmartApp (or maybe you can do it from the dashboard, never tried) so that when Vibration stops, it turns on this Virtual On/Off tile. Ubi watches the tile and then says something when the tile goes on.
I use this setup for a couple of different "complex" interactions I've built with Ubi. When I say 'Goodnight' to Ubi, Ubi turns on a Virtual Tile. This triggers a smart app to check if any selected doors or windows are left open... if they are this triggers one or two other virtual tiles. Ubi watches those tiles and then reports: "A windows is open" or "A door is open" based on which (if either) virtual tile is on.
A very important final step is that the smart app, after waiting a few minutes, turns off all the virtual tiles in question so that it's all set for next evening.

When you're inside of your defined geo-fence the MobileApp reports you (well, your phone) as present. When you're outside of it, it reports as away. No need for BT or WiFi to be on.
I know some people have had good luck with it and others have reported it as extremely temperamental, but worth trying.

I have several "multi-sensors".. not just "open and close states... but temp, vibration and open close.
I use one of these for a Laundry indicator (when it's done based on stopped vibration for X time) and one for a "knock on the front door (as well as it being opened).
Right now I run it through a few things, smartThings, my phone and then UBI to identify / say when it's done and needs checking (attention).
Being able to have UBI mention that the laundry is done without these extra workarounds would be great!
