I was happy (?) to see that I’m not the only one experiencing this, but I’d like to add that I have *Gen1* keypads, so this isn’t solely a Gen2 issue; it was definitely the result of a recent keypad update.
Both of my keypads are hardwired (using some 12v-to-5v-USB adapters I got somewhere) and up until a few weeks/months ago, each one would *always* indicate the mode without requiring motion or a keypress. Waking up in the middle of the night and wondering if I remember to arm the alarm shouldn’t require me to get out of bed to check; I should be able to look across the room and have my answer. (I suspect I’m preaching to the choir here, but I’m a little cranky since I felt like my keypads were mocking me – “We never showed you the mode; you always had to stand in front of the keypad or press a button!”)
I’m not familiar with this community board; is there a better way to lodge a “Ring, please fix this!” request with the mothership? I mentioned this to my brother and he confirmed that he’s having the same issue and suggested that perhaps Ring made this “no mode light until ‘requested’” change to benefit the non-hardwired users which is great, but almost irrelevant for hardwired users. (I say almost because maybe someone out there cares about the extra 4 milliamps per week that the LEDs draw.
