There's a map object like that, it's located under Status Icons > Sizeable Icon on Status Related Background. After acknowledging, it will have a salmon like color, though. This item is compatible with a single sensor as well as a entire device.

Sorry, such a map object isn't available, but feel free to create a custom map object for it :)
