Warning: The rest of this post discusses Panel Programming and assumes you have a basic understanding of Programmer mode.

Once the Relays have been configured, you will need to program your panel to activate them. On the 20P this is done through the *79 and *80 menus.

The *79 menu creates logical output device. Each logical output defines a device (Relay, X10 device or built-in trigger). Only the Relay type is supported by the ad2usb. You will probably want to create 8 logical output devices and number them 1-8 for convenience (to map to your on-board zones 1-8). Each logical output device should have Output Type 1 = relay on 4204/4229 module. Then, starting with Device #1 use Module Address 12, and Relay Position 1, and so on for the first 4 (1-4) logical devices. Then use Module Address 13, and Relay Position 1, and so on for the next 4 (5-8) logical devices.

Next, on menu *80 you will create the output functions that will trigger the logical output devices you just created. The Output Functions should be numbered 1-8 to match your on-board zone numbers and the logical device numbers. This is not required, but it will make things easier to track later on. When creating each Output Function, you will want the Activated By set to 3 = Zone number. Next, for Enter Event select 1 = alarm/fault/trouble. For the Output Action select 2 = Stay Closed. and finally, select the Output Number of a logical device you created in menu *79. I suggest you keep the numbering straight. Output function 1 to logical device 1, etc. Now, each time any of your 8 zones is closed, you will see a Relay event like this in your ad2usb data stream: !REL:12,01,01

For someone who isn't familiar with programming mode, would you be willing to explain the button press sequence? I've taken over my Ademco panel using thisprocedure), installed AD2USB, fiddled with the GUI, but I do not know programmer mode & would like to configure these virtual relays. I entered programming mode, *79 menu, and "01" shows up on my keypad. I do not know where to go from there.

Any help is appreciated.

I may have found what I need on page 10 of the manual--I'll give it a try later this week.

Hopefully you have made some progress. I was wondering what you wanted to use the relays for? If it was to enable advanced mode in the Indigo ad2usb plugin, it ids probably not worth the effort since, with Sean's very efficient algorithm, cleared zone detection is really about as fast as using advanced mode.

In the past few days I realized I didn't really need to go the way of enabling the outputs, so I haven't made progress... but by choice! With what's in the original post and from what I read in the manual, I'm pretty sure I could figure it out if I needed to.

Thanks!

My purpose was so that I can detect tripped zones when the alarm is in ARMED state, and it appears that I'll need to do this. In particular, I'd like for the motion sensor(s) to send a tripped state to Vera irrespective of alarm state.
