Frankly speaking: The current KeyPad is not an outstanding product, not only from my point of view, also a lot of negative feedback can be found on the net…
For sure, the major design flaw is the missing backlit!
But also the missing 0 and the form factor in general (yes, it’s small to fit easily beside the door, but just inconvenient to use).
Are there any plans to introduce a new one in the near future?
Maybe an additional one, not a replacement for the existing.
Why not to offer a full size KeyPad?
Featuring backlit, and a usual Keyboard layout.
With a bigger size, different Batteries (eg standard AAA or AA) would be possible to mitigate the additional power requirements for the backlit.
Just my two cents…
