So - I added the Vera ZWave security sensor driver, and it is bound to the Vera Controller. The ZWave security sensor is connected to the generic motion sensor. When I run my hand over the actual sensor - I can see a change of state to closed (verified = Yes). So it seems to be working.
When the Motion sensor senses motion: If specific light is off, then turn on that light
When the Motion sensor stops sensing motion: If specific light is off, then turn off that light
When I hit the execute button for each script, they each execute.
I have many other events tied to similar logic - just cannot seem to have the motion sensor trigger simply turning on a light
