I have light switches just inside the door, but they are about chest level for me.

Trying to remember how high I’ve seen them previously..

Anyone else have pics of their keypad on the wall?
I mounted mine just above the light switches at the front door. Right about chin level for me, at 6'2. (and yeah, I haven't gotten around to painting over the previous alarm's holes yet)

That looks slick. Did you use something like this for the AC adaptor? Image

It's wireless and not meant to be plugged in 24/7. I've read on Reddit a lot of people who thought they would leave it plugged in constantly and it would freeze up on them frequently. Of course, YMMV and it may work perfectly. I think I read the battery lasts around 6-10 months depending on use.

Not nearly as neat as that, but mine is on the other side of the wall behind some furniture, so I didn't really care that it look perfect:

Unless they've updated it since I got mine back in March, that's not true. When you unplug it, it disables some of the functionality to preserve battery life. I haven't had any freezing issues at all. See the push alert that comes up when it gets unplugged:

Ah. I think you're meaning the base. I was referring to the keypad. I didn't even notice the base in the original picture until I just looked again. Carry on!

That was pretty quick. Ordered late on the 21st, packaged the next morning and taken by UPS on the 23rd. Arrived in Toronto today.

The 14pc kit was an 8pc kit plus 2x2 contact sensors, 1x motion detector and 1x extra keypad.
