Security Spy Camera as a group with a motion sensor

I've been a user of security spy and Perry's plugin for years and it's been awesome not only because I get safe access to my IP cameras, but because I'm cheap and it saves me from adding a motion sensor to places I have cameras.

However, I recently found I wasn't quite getting all of the motion coverage I wanted in my garage with just my camera so I added a motion sensor to cover more of an area.

Here is my problem, I cheat and turn a variable to true and then to false based on motion alerts from the camera. I would like to be able to add these somehow as a motion device group but looking at my options, I'm not sure there is an elegant way to accomplish this without a script? If anyone has any obvious ideas and feels like chiming in to set me straight I would greatly appreciate it!

Check out Berkinet's Group Trigger plugin - works great and I think it is what you are looking for.

Doesn't work because a motion detection is an event, not a state. I'm using that event to toggle a variable. So I need a variable true or motion detector on to trigger a virtual device on.

I have my motion sensors set individual variables and then use the variables in my group trigger...
