I am looking to purchase a Vera3 and a Kwikset electronic deadbolt lock with smartkey and z-wave.  I want to have scene that would arm my alarm (and the inside motion detectors) when I lock the Kwikset from the outside (via the lock button).  However, I also want a scene that would do a "STAY" arm when I lock the Kwikset from indoors (by rotating the latch).

Does the Kwikset and Vera3 recognize whether the lock was locked from indoors or outdoors?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Yes, there are separate notifications/events for Lock Button Pressed (outside) and door locked - though door locked could be by key from the outside or by the lever on the inside (or through Vera).
