It sounds like you want to be able to drive a real 4204.    You could probably simulate the keypress of function keys which can be associated with a relay, or set up a virtual wire expander.    Virtual wire expanders allow you to give your panel input (fault virtual sensors), which could be associated with a relay event.

The other facet of 4204 support is being able to set up virtual (or real) relay events, and then listen for those eventsevents (!REL).   Having that support allows you to set up the panel such that you get immediate notification of hard-wire faults.   Sean just enabled 4204 emulation for SE panels in the latest beta, and it works great.    I'm using it in my own custom (C#) AD2USB monitoring code that manually drives my Vera, but it would be great to see support for it get added to Vera's AD2USB module.   Note that with SE panels, the panel only supports 1 4204 relay (at address 1).  The AD2USB typically emulates at addresses 12-15 for other panels.
