Would love to be able to dim the battery light for use in the bedroom. Quite bright for sleeping.

What is the function of the 2 objects just below the Faulted Sensor Icon, and to the right Home Mode button? They are not shown or labeled on the diagram.

Great question @lp ! Those 2 components on the keypad are sensors which control lights. One sensor will detect motion (proximity) and illuminate the Keypad, as long as it is not in power save mode. The other is a sensor for light, which will determine if the keypad buttons need to be illuminated based on the brightness, or darkness, of the environment. Hope this helps!

The battery Icon is flashing in Red, what does that mean?

That is certainly an unusual light pattern to see. Please attempt a reset by briefly pushing in and releasing the pinhole button on the back of the Keypad, while it is unplugged. You will likely need a paper clip to do so.

 

If this does not resolve that LED indicator, I recommend reaching out to our support team for more in depth troubleshooting.

2 Questions:

 

Should the Network Connection icon always be lit up?

 

Now that a Duress Code has been added, is there really still a need for the Panic buttons?
