Keypad lighting

Is it possible to keep the numeric keypad lit?  In a dark room it's difficult to see the buttons you are pressing or to see the status of the system without waving your hand in front of the keypad (assuming you can even see the keypad in the dark).

Hi @Tomba, 

Currently, there is not an option to keep the buttons of the Keypad lit at all times. LEDs use a fair amount of power, so having the Keypad constantly lit up would cause a big battery drain for the batteries. The expected battery life of 8-12 months is already pretty short, and we wanted to do everything that we can to extend it!
