Vista 20P + 4204 Relay + GRI Pool Alarm

I have an existing alarm panel GE NX6 with a GRI Pool Alarm. The pool Alarm is tied into the GE NX6 through a built in panel relay.
Everything is working and Chiming correctly.
All the Sliding Doors that go to the Pool Area have 1 set of contacts on them so the Pool Alarm and the Alarm are using the same contacts.

I am trying to get the Alarm monitored but we are locked out of programming.

Because we are locked out of programming I am replacing the GE NX6 with a Honeywell Vista 20p and was told that I needed to get a 4204 relay. I now have the New Panel and Relay but am looking for help on getting the Pool Alarm tied in so I don't have to add sensors to the system.

Have you tried using the DL900 software and a direct connect module (NX-586/588)? That will bypass the installer code and allow you to view/change it unless the original install did something unusual.

That said, which model of GRI alarm do you have? There are several, and they don't all wire the same.

Were I to guess, your previous setup was using the alarm control output to trip the input points on the pool alarm when a specific type of zone was tripped.

For the Vista panel, you will do something similar, only you will need to program a relay on the 4204 to change states when the zone(s) in your pool perimeter are tripped.
