Sensors activating terms



I'm trying to build few scenes with motion and door sensors but then I got confused which is the proper activation/deactivation term to use for each device:


  • Armed
  • Disarmed
  • Breached
  • Breached and Armed 
  • Breached and Disarmed
  • Safe
  • Safe and armed
  • Safe and disarmed
  • Tamper tripped
  • Tamper not tripped


Would it make difference if I select Breached instead of Armed for the Door sensor? If someone can share some example for better understanding, I'd highly appreciate.

It is very simple when you divide this in three sections/elements:

1) Motion sensor State - breached or safe.  Breached means sensor detected motion. (infrared detection)

2) Alarm state - Armed  or Disarmed. Armed - means if sensor breached integrated alarm will triggered. Usually fibaro alarm is the default if you didn't set any alarm plugin.  You can find your setup in panels

Huge different.

Breached means motion detected, in your case door is opened.

Armed means that the device has been armed that's all. Door close/open not detected.
