How about a combination of mine and carry15+1's suggestions. Set the auxillary zone to a separate area. Write a rule that will only report to the CS when that separate area is armed and that zone violates. Or, what about paralleling that zone as an auxillary zone so you always have a log armed or disarmed. And, use the same switch for a different zone that will call the CS when the system is armed only. I'm still shooting from the hip here.
