Vista - what zone type for 'non-alarm' conditions

I have a wireless horn (5800WAVE) connected to my Vista 20p panel. Occasionally, it loses network connectivity and I would like this reported to me, but not as an alarm condition (I have it setup as zone type 12 (monitor zone)). I would like conditions like this to be reported as "system trouble" or something else that I have going to notification via email, rather than "alarm" which have have setup to wake me up. Any thoughts on selecting a different zone type? I know I could change the RF type to 4 and stop the network monitoring entirely, but I would rather not do that.

I cannot recall exactly how those units are set up. If you are looking for a zone type to put in, you may try a zone type 08, or a 06. But, if your system is monitored, make sure that you inform the monitoring system not to dispatch for this zone.
