1st generation keypad has the status of the alarm on it all the time even though the keypad digits itself goes dark when you walk away. The 2nd generation does not have this. It all goes dark when you walk away. I understand the intension is for battery life but this is not good. We need an update for that so the keypad digits to go dark but the alarm status stays lit so you can see what's going on from across the room. Should be able to fix this with an app update or device update. You shouldn't have to remember what the keyboard mode is set at? You should be able to just look from the other side of the room. Thanks for listening.... Otherwise happy!
