Sensor Group 25, 28 or 32 for Outdoor Motion on Simon XT


Nube to this forum, so greetings everyone. I recently decided to add an outdoors PIR to my Simon XT system managed though FP. Basically I want these PIR events not to trigger an alarm themselves but still get logged by the system so that I can do home automation on them (such as turn on flood lights etc). FP suggested I use group 25 for that purpose, but I realized that group results in "3 beeps" every time something triggers the PIR. I know I can turn off those 3 beeps in the panel BUT I actually want to keep them for other events which I do care to be notified about, such as when someone opens by front gate with group 40 etc so.. The question is, is there a motions sensor group that I can use that does not trigger alarms or causes those three beeps?

Group 28 and 32 looks interesting, but the manuals I found are a bit cryptic on what those groups are exactly for, and when I tried 28, the PIR trigger caused a weird local alarm mode. I'm wondering if there is a way to make 28 or 32 work somehow, or if there is another group that could serve this purpose. Any thoughts or suggestions?

27, 32, or 32 look to be your best bets. GE/ITI has always been a bit cryptic about the features of their sensor group/zone types.
