Can Simplisafe Motion Sensors be used for Automation?

Finally got my Simplisafe integration all working. See’s everything fine and can arm and disarm the alarm. However when I try to utilize a motion sensor to turn on a light it doesn’t trigger. Tried multiple approaches and cant understand why. Tested the alarm to see if the sensors were even working and they do work just delayed. So I assume I can utilize the Simplisafe sensors for other things?
