PIR shows as Open Zone

I've just added a PIR to alarm system. It keeps showing as an open zone, even though i've ckecked the wiring / connections etc.

If it has power, and you are connected to an alarm zone, you might need to have the supervision resistor in the circuit, or you may have to configure the zone. Also, some motions have normally closed and normally open contacts, for most alarms you use normally closed.
