Are there any updates to this frozen keypad issue? We have two keypads in our home and both have become frozen while we are on vacation. This makes it very difficult for guests to enter the home.
Have you received/installed the keypad firmware update that started rolling out a few weeks ago?
So far I have not encountered the issue anymore myself or with the handful of others that I've updated for people, since the update was released. Mine have been constantly powered since the update without freezing as of yet, and usually they were pretty on the mark at about 3 weeks of continuous power when this would begin.
Though it hasn't been a huge amount of time since it was released, so I hadn't marked this as solved yet, as there hadn't really been sufficient time to confirm one way or the other. This is the first report I've heard of it happening since the update though, so I'm really curious if you have updated the keypad firmware or not.
Firmware is needed to prevent constant charge, which will kill the battery much sooner than designed.
Circuitry should only enable charging when it goes below a certain threshold and stop once it hits 100% (or even 80% to prevent overcharging).
Got the same problem with one of my keypads. After an email and talking to tech support they told me they had battery issues. Once charged and left plugged in, the next day the keypad goes offline with a dead battery. I was told “we fixed it a while ago” and they would send me a replacement unit with improved battery circuitry .
Since I’m not there, a vacation home, I had replacement shipped to our electrician. The replacement keypad does the same thing! Ugg.
I have two keypad, both plugged in, one works the other doesn’t.
Ring, any solutions?.
