Model S: Hansshow Trunk Kick Sensor - Wiring

Hansshow has recently changed their hookup method for the wires from the control box to the factory liftgate button/factory latch mechanism/factory trunk open button <rant> and is being even more unhelpful than usual in providing a simple answer to simple question of where 3 silly wires from *their own design* taps into </rant>.

Has anyone installed a Model S kick sensor with the wiring in the picture attached and can advise what the "open" and "close" wires connect to. I trust the light wire is the positive connection to the trunk lid light, but correct me if that is wrong.

Of course I could take some educated guesses, but if that destroys the control box (or worse components of the car) would at the very least be right be right back where I am now "talking" to Hansshow about the issue.
