Keypad illumination

I need to turn of system in the dark or will incur wrath of my wife in the morning. Is there anyway to light up keypad for 10 seconds or so?

Hi @jmmcaseykey 

The light on the Keypad should illuminate upon touch, and dim shortly after. If you want to disable this feature, the best option for you would be to activate Power Savings mode from the Keypad itself.

To activate Power Savings from the keypad press Menu -> Enter your Master PIN -> Devices -> Select your keypad -> Set Power Savings to OnPower Savings mode has the following effects:

  • Disables the touch-to-wake feature
  • Dims screen in 5 seconds instead of 12
  • Turns off the screen after 10 seconds instead of 20

Let me know if this helps, or if you have any other questions.

The top of the keypad does illuminate. I want the numbers on the keypad to illuminate so I can type in my code and deactivate the alarm.

@jmmcaseykey​ the number pad should automatically light up whenever it's needed - primarily if the system is asking for a PIN. Is that not happening for you?
