FAQ

How do I use this driver?

  1. Load Extras: Press and hold the Light Bulb to pop up the Extras menu. Tap 'Light Extras'.
  2. Select Keypads: Toggle the switch against any keypad names you want to control backlights for.
  3. Choose a Color: Pick a color within the color picker, and your selected keypads backlights will start changing color. It is recommended to 'tap' a color and wait as dragging may incur delays. Click 'Done' when you are happy with your selection.
  4. Adjust Brightness: Adjust your brightness further to the desired level. Brightness levels may adjust dynamically based on Ambient Light Profile setting in Composer.
  5. Don't turn the light off: If you turn the light off, while the keypads are still selected then the backlights will change to Black. This is by design. You have a few options:
    - Leave the light always on, with the color selected.
    - Disable all keypads from the Extras menu, then turn the light 'off'; the driver only changes backlight colors of devices that have been toggled 'on' within the Extras.

Why can't I see my keypad in the 'extras' list?

It is possible that support for a particular keypad has been missed in error. If this is the case, please let us know and we will try to include it as soon as possible.

My devices are hard to find, can I change the sorting?

The default sorting arrangement for Rooms and Devices in the 'Extras' menu has been set as per the native App experience. You also have the option in the driver Properties page to sort Rooms and/or Devices alphabetically, based on the customers preference.

Note: The Property 'Hide Sorting' must be set to 'No' for sorting options to appear in the 'Extras' menu.

Why won't my new keypad show up in the Extras?

If Rooms or Devices have been added/removed/modified, the Extras menu will not update automatically.

Use the 'Refresh Extras' button in the 'Extras' menu to update all devices and rooms. Any toggled Keypads will remain toggled.

Why do my backlights go black when I turn the Keypad Backlights light off?

This is the expected behavior.

If you want to have the Keyapd Backlights switch set to 'off' and keep the backlight colors active, untoggle all keypads from the 'Extras' menu before turning the switch 'off'.
