V_ARMED vs V_TRIPPED questions.

i have a door sensor, and an defined MyMessage msg(CHILD_ID,V_TRIPPED);
It notifies me wether the door is open or not.
How can it also be connected to the alarm, in order that:
- alarm unarmed and being home, only notify that door is open or not.
- alarm armed and being away or not, notifies that door is open or not and in case of open, also activates the alarm.
how to use V_TRIPPED and V_ARMED?
Thx in advance
@pw44 I would say that raising an alarm or not is the task of the controller, not the sensor. The sensor should only report door status, and the controller combines a number of parameters to decide if the alarm should sound.

Agree with @Yveaux.
V_ARMED can be used in battery powered door sensors to preserve battery, or to reduce traffic. don't send V_TRIPPED if V_ARMED is not set. Sounding alarm is controller's decision.
