Automating smart switch when Home Secuirty system Alarm is Triggered.

Community Member

@i i am Trying to Connect my Home Security system with a smart switch.
which is connected to external High Power Sirens.
the Scene/Automation i am expecting is as follows
Home Security System (Intrusion Detection Alarm) -> Smart Switch (Turns On)

Home Security System (System Disabled) -> Smart Switch (Turns Off)

 From the Home app when i try to create a routine starter, the security system only has
Arms to -> away mode/home mode

what i need is something like this
Alarm Triggered -> Pir Sensor/Door Sensor/SOS

Please find below the screenshot showing the above
