The document you referenced does not provide me enough detail to know how to use the connections…

pin 1 = output number 17 (trigger 1):
15 ohms to ground when closed (output
low), open when off (output high, normal
default); can be used to reset smoke
detector power (must set “output normal
low = yes” in *79 Menu mode, and set for
zone type 54, fire zone reset, in *80 Menu
mode); or can support 12V relay module†
that draws less than 100mA
pin 5 = output number 18 (trigger 2):
100 ohms to ground when closed (output
low); open when off (output high, normal
default); or can support 12V relay module
that draws less than 20mA

If you have a voltmeter and can measure what the alarm system is providing under the various conditions, I should be able to tell you if that will work with the inputs. The voltage requirements of the EZIO6I are well documented. What is missing is the voltage detail of the alarm system. Have you looked at the manufacturer of the alarm system, perhaps they have a forum that can provide the missing information. I would not attempt to connect any of the alarm system pins to the EZIO6I inputs without understanding the voltage data for the respective pin.

The document you referenced does discuss a relay module that can be connected to the alarm system. Fig 11 shows four relays with Com/NC/NO connections which could be used.
