Connections for a PIR, Ademco IS-215T

I'm trying to wire the PIR into a Vista 20P panel. The "+" and "-" I can probably figure out, but the PIR has a "C" and "NC" terminal - how are those wired and what's the best way to to put in the EOLR? This is the only thing on the zone.

The best way is to connect the resistor to any one of the zone wire pair from your 4 conductor, then put the free lead of the resistor in either NC or C, and the other wire of the pair in the vacant terminal.

Then connnect the zone wire pair at the panel end to the zone terminals you are using.

It's just a relay (switch) triggered by the motion sensor circuit, so for the zone leads polarity doesn't matter. It does, of course matter for the power supply leads.
