Ademco 4202 with Vista 20p for tripped wired zone signaling

I am trying to set up Vista 20p with 4202 relay to signal when a zone is tripped. I have configured relay (*79) and output functions (*80) to close and open the relay. However this does not happen when alarm is armed, the zone is tripped and keypad is waiting for disarming. It works OK for motion sensor, but does not work for door sensor. Is this because the door sensor is in entry delay mode? Can this behavior be changed?

What configuration did you use for the relay programming?

*79
ENTER OUTPUT NO. 01 *
OUT NORM LOW 0 *
OUTPUT TYPE 1 *
MODULE ADDR 12 *
REL POSITION 1 *
00 *
*80
Output Funct. # 01 *

Output Funct. # 11 *

To clarify: it works as expected when not armed. When I open the door relay closes, when I close the door it opens. But when armed away and I open the door the keypad goes into entry delay and the relay does not react.

Hmmmm, the only thing I can think of would be to add an additional output program and set it to work for either the entry/exit #1 zone type, or for the start of entry time.

Basically, the problem is that the until the delay times out, the zone doesn't actually show as a fault. The only practical solution is one command that works when armed and the other for when disarmed.

I tested the entry/exit #1 zone type, but it behaves the same way as the zone itself.

The start of entry delay works, but it does not let me know which door tripped it. My intention was to use the relay to show which door started the entry delay.

I get what you are trying to do (some kind of latching visual indicator for each zone), but the problem is that the programming configuration for the outputs simply isn't that granular.

Different brands and models do this sort of thing with varying degrees of success. The Vista output programming is really designed to do fairly simple things.
