    Motion sensors

    Hi there. I had a play around with the plugin using magnetic strip sensors and found that to be fine for what I want.

    My next thing is motion sensors. If I have motion sensors with built in resistors which give different readings depending on state can I use them with this plugin and the pi?

    E.g. no motion detected = 2.2kohms
    Motion detected = 6.4 kohms
    Tamper switch activated = 9kohms

    Readings are just an example rather than exact amounts but you get the idea.

    Is there a resistance reading status I can assign to the gpio in this plugin?

    Thanks in advance :-)
