Using PIR With An I/O Device?

Hi all,

I'm currently looking for a solution for what initially seemed like a rather simple problem. Basically, what I’m trying to do is find some type of PIR/Motion detector that will work with an I/O device while not overcomplicating the install with a full alarm panel or any other unnecessary hardware, etc. These PIR devices will be used indoors within an office...
