Omni motion zones
So I'm going through the Elk, Omni, RA2 drivers and updating them to provide some more configuration and options. One of the things I want to do is to get the event trigger stuff under better control. In the Omni currently, it doesn't differentiate between zone types when it sends a trigger. It always sends a zone alarm trigger.

I can of course update it to only send one of those if the zone (on the CQC driver side) is configured as an alarm zone. That's done easily enough. But I wanted to also add support for motion sensors. I don't see a motion zone type in the Omni protocol docs though.

So, is this something i don't need to do? I'll do the update to only send the zone alarm trigger for alarm type zones, but if it doesn't support motion zones, I won't update to support that.

If it does support motion zones, what's the zone status for values for start/end motion, in the sent out zone status report I mean.

I'll also be updating them all to allow you to indicate whether or not you want a given thing to send triggers or not, so that you can control it on a zone, load, etc... basis.

In HAI land, there is no differentiation between a motion vs. a standard zone. I just appears as a standard zone in that it is either secure or tripped.
Maybe add a special zone type (similar to temperature, humidity and alarm) within the CQC driver and allow manual selection of that zone type during setup.

Oh, duh. Now that you point it out, I know I've been told this probably more than once before but forgot it.
