Such gear may or may not already exist. I have barely-more-than-zero relevant expertise.
Yeah, what you're talking about is more or less an RMS (Root Mean Square) sensor. It measures the power/amplitude of a sound over a period of time and spits out the average db levels. The problem is two part in that I do not know if the board has a built in RMS sensor, (I'm betting it doesn't) and I do not know how, or even if you would be able to then side chain that sensor into something like a variable dependent gate. It's a good idea though, and I've sent a text over to one of my old professors asking about that possibility.

Good luck on the project, let us see when is finished!
Yeah, my own experience is mostly in field recording raw audio, working in the studio working on studio boards, and sitting in front of DAWs like Pro Tools to manipulate audio in post production. Working live events and on live mix boards is not my forte, this is a good learning experience for me. I'll definitely be updating here once we're in the project!
Also, I've contacted some of my old professors on this matter. They're in on it as well now to help me out.
Some of our initial conversation on the matter in the spoiler
