I am trying to figure out a solution for the behavior of my garage during stay vs. away scenarios. I found this thread which was helpful, but doesn’t quite get me there:

Conceptually, when I arm my system for stay I want the garage to become an extension of my interior space, but when armed away I want it excluded. This way I can arm my system stay and still move freely between the garage and the house.
Here is what I have and what I think I want:
Door between garage and house - when armed away, I want this to be an entry/exit door on normal delay. When armed stay, I want this excluded from triggering the alarm. So like sensor group 16, but with a normal entry/exit delay instead of instant.
Side door between garage and backyard - when armed away (and when not armed), I want notifications only for this door, like sensor group 25. When armed stay, I want instant alarm, like sensor group 13.
Garage rollup doors. I want the same behavior as #2. Also, my garage doors are currently controlled by the automation side of my system but I don’t see a way to incorporate them as sensors as well. Would this require mounting additional sensors for each door? If so, what kind of sensors would be best? Just normal DW sensors, or tilt, or something else?
