I spent quite a bit of money on the Ring system to replace an older system. I did the retrofit kit which worked great, got everything installed and noticed there were no lights on my keypad unless I walk up to it. This is completely stupid and pointless. One of the main reasons for a physical keypad (Besides arming and disarming) is to be able to glance at it to see the status. Why would I need to walk all the way over to it to accomplish is? Absolute design fail. Please fix this ASAP. I went back to a 1st gen to get this feature although I ran into two issues with that which I will get to with two other posts to keep things relevant. Please fix 2nd gen Keypad so I can go back to it later. Thanks!!!

The KEYPAD should provide an indication that a sensor is OPEN. This could be as simple as the BLUE LED flashing when a sensor is open . I know the app shows what is open, but nothing is easier than looking at the KEYPAD for status. I originally thought it had provided this functionality when I opened a sensor while in DISARMED mode, the BLUE LED shut OFF, but it came back ON (darn!). If it had this feature you could easily view the KEYPAD to notice something was open while in the DISARMED mode, so if your garage was open you would know. This feature was available with my old MOOSE alarm system, so RING would move its system to a more professional status with this feature. Thank you!
