DSC Plugin: Arm vs. Force Arm

I realized recently that when Vera was arming my DSC panel in “away” mode using “Arm”, it was bypassing my motion sensors as if it was in “Stay” mode. (This does not occur when hitting Away from the keypad)

The only way around this seemed to be to tell Vera to set the alarm as “Force Arm” instead of Arm. Is this right? Are there other implications for doing it this way?

Thanks,
Mike
