Safewatch 3000 - Motion Sensor

I have a Safewatch 3000 with 2 wireless motion sensors. I would like that the motion sensors "report back" to the panel when the alarm is not activated or in stay mode, so my home automation system (Control4) could trigger actions based on the motion sensors.

I been reading the manual but are not sure what to do. Is there any particular zone type I should use?? Or any other changes to do to the alarm configuration??

Thanks for your help!!

I suspect that what you are trying to do is some form of "occupancy sensor". If you were using hardwired motions, you would be able to program an output so that any fault on a zone list containing those zones would trip a relay.

The problem is that wireless motions do not continuously detect. They go dormant for 5-7 minutes after any activation (to prevent killing the battery in an actively occupied space), which will probably not work for your application.
