Rapidly draining Original Keypad

Gen 2 keypad batteries running out at accelerating rate. Batteries lasted almost a year at first. Now they last less than a month. Nothing has changed. What?

@ericsmithindy,  

Are you seeing a Low Battery Warning prompting you to change your Keypad's batteries? If you are, it means there's some interference blocking the signal between your Base Station and Keypad - this makes the Keypad work harder, causing its battery to drain. I know you mention that nothing has changed, but have you introduced any new wireless devices around your Keypad or Base Station? If so, they could be blocking the signal between your Keypad and Base Station.
