I started trawling through the documentation but decided I could probably save myself a little time by asking the experts!
What I want to do is very simple: run a simple Applescript if any of my three Z-wave motion detectors are triggered.
Can I do this easily with OpenRemote, and if so, are there any examples?
Thanks in advance!
This is what you can do with the OpenRemote native Zwave implementation:

Yes, you can do this with OpenRemote. There are examples how to do it in the Othmar Kyas' book http://www.openremote.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/How-To-Smart-Home-PDF-OR.pdf

FWIW: Othmar's book and this document do deal with presence detection scripting, but not based on Z-Wave motion detectors. Motion detectors are not in the list of OpenRemote certified Z-Wave devices.

Good that I did not know about this . I'm using Z-wave motion detectors without problems with following rules:
rule "Mark PIR1"
$e: Event(source=="PIR 1-OnOffSensor")
BTW, they were imported in my pro design without problems.

Please contact Pierre and have your motion detector added to the list.

I was aware that some can be considered as a binary sensor, but I don't know if it works with any multi sensor z-wave device. So it is indeed good to report specific devices that work with a protocol
