Also, buttons light up if the keypad detects motion (your hand gets close) when power save mode is off.
Installed control panel in bedroom yesterday, will put tape over green light today! Come on Ring, let's get a fix for the battery light!
Just installed Ring. I agree with everyone here, the green battery indicator light is INSANELY bright. It's almost a deal-breaker for us. Is there any direct line to customer service that will allow us to complain in person, in case they are ignoring the community chat?
I just spoke with Cammy at Ring support. She confirmed that this request has been forwarded to the Ring developers many times, but that the developers have determined that the battery LED cannot be disabled due to design limitations of the keypad. In other words, it's going to take a hardware change, not just a firmware and app update. Cammy at Ring said the only way to turn off the battery LED would be to unplug the keypad and let it run on battery, but doing so would also turn off the alarm status LEDs (Away/Home/Disarmed).
So, I just put tape over the battery status light since I don't want to give up having the alarm status LEDs constantly illuminated (but dimmed). So that the tape doesn't look so stupid, I plan on picking up some white electrical tape to hide the darker tape (silver aluminum HVAC tape) that I'm using to obscure the green light.
Since its USB powered it seems the final option is to add an IOT controlled smart plug with switchable USB port that can be used to set a charging schedule so it only charges at convienient times. This way the light would be off when its not charging.
This may do it but sure there are lots of other options. Smart plug
