Controller is a VeraEdge.
New device is GE Smart Motion Sensor ZW6302 (battery mode)
Paired device to VeraEdge
(Error messages: Waiting for Node, Cannot contact device, error code 1)
Read several posts on this forum, instructed to make changes in advance setting.
device_type = urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:MotionSensor:1
device_file = D_MotionSensor1.xml
device_json = D-MotionSensor1.json
category_num = 4
subcategory_num = 3
Made these changes, I no longer get the error messages but the device still do not detect motion. The Vera app switches on and off via clicking the buttons but the Motion detector still do not respond to the commands.
What should I do next?

I was incorrect.  The motion sensor is detecting motion.  What settings must I change to have the ability to turn the motion sensor off and on.
Right now its on all the time.  Sensing motion every 5 mins.

Replying to email too.

Clarification:
I meant to say. How do you arm or disarm the motion sensor via using the Vera Mobile app on my smartphone and on website.

Example: I use my Vera Mobile app on my smartphone to turn on and off lights.  I also use the app to lock and unlock my door.

Right now I do not have the ability to arm or disarm the motion detect. Every time the detector sense movement it cause an icon in the app to turn red. It also sends my mobile phone a text notification : (Alert/Notice from You Vera System) MotionDevice1 in room Whole Home Mobile has been tripped. Gateway ID: 45009177 2018-10-03 21:45:08

And sometimes this notification is sent too.
 (Alert/Notice from You Vera System) in room no room has low battery level. Gateway ID: 45009177 2018-10-03 21:34:22

Currently: On my Vera Mobile App. Dashboard.
I can see the motion detector icon.
Battery shown as 100%
Icon is black
I do not see an ?Arm? or ?Disarm? button.
If I trigger the Motion detector, the icon on the dashboard turns RED.

How do I disarm the motion detector using my Vera Mobile app? This way I can Arm or disarm Motion Detector when I want to.

If I use the website Home.getvera.com. I can see more stuff.
Battery shown as 100%
Icon is black
I see an ?Arm? or ?Disarm? button.
If I trigger the Motion detector, the icon on the dashboard turns RED.

The Arm/Disarm switch can be toggled back and forth but it has no effect to the Motion Sensor.
Meaning:  If I click ?Disarm?, the icon indicates the state changed to disarm but the Motion Detector is still armed, it still triggers and send out notifications to mobile app and text messages.

Added another motion sensor. Now I have 2 motion sensors in my setup.
Both sensors are connected to 5Vdc  using USB power.
I did not use the batteries.
Both sensors are triggered by motion. It works.
I still do not have the ability to arm or disarm the motion sensor remotely.

Here are the advance settings I entered manually for both sensors.
device_type = urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:MotionSensor:1
device_file = D_MotionSensor1.xml
device_json = D-MotionSensor1.json
category_num = 4
subcategory_num = 3

Do anyone know what settings I can change to have the ability to ARM and DISARM the sensors remotely.
Be able to arm or disarm the sensors using Vera Mobile.
Disarm: Sensor do not trigger from motion.
Arm: Sensor trigger from motion.
