I agree 100% that this is an absolutely necessary feature. Not being able to see if the alarm is enabled across the room is a huge step back from the ADT system I'm coming from. This seems like an easy fix to allow an option to keep the lights on. Can we get a beta for this?
Resurrecting an old request...
Is there any update on this request yet? Is it possible, planned, unapproved, not possible to allow the Mode buttons to be constantly illuminated to indicate which Mode you're in? I imagine this would be easily possible, but hoped it might be implemented by now with the number of people requesting the option.
