The Ring Alarm Keypad is designed to allow you and anyone in your home to easily arm and disarm your system without a smartphone. You can easily move it around your home because of its built-in rechargeable battery that may last many months on a full charge, depending on usage. See the images below for an explanation of each button and light.
Check out the video below to see how you can use your Keypad to "Arm" and "Disarm" your Ring Alarm or follow this link to see the steps in a Ring Help article.

Hi @TechGuy42, thank you for asking! This helped me see that I may have over simplified that description, so I edited it a bit. By "flow" I meant that it can be used to bypass any sensors that can't be armed, and continue arming the system. I have updated this article as well. Thank you again for your feedback!
Hey @DiabloDayv , good question! If you leave the keypad plugged in, the mode will show. We suggest unplugging the keypad once every few weeks to refresh the battery connection.
Hi @DiabloDayv , thank you for the feedback. Regarding the Battery Light being on when plugged in, you are correct that there is no way to turn it off while plugged in. The reason it is not the reverse is because when your Keypad is unplugged, it goes into power save mode. It will however light up yellow to notify you when the battery is running low.
Thanks for being a great neighbor!
If panic mode has been triggered on the keypad or a button, is disarming it the same as disarming the whole system? That is, press the Disarm button and then enter the PIN? Or use the app, or Alexa? Thanks.
