What does "Backlight" Do?

Backlight sets the on and off brightness levels of the leds in the KPL

The default of 0/0 is not an accurate representation of the actual levels that may be set. The on and off level settings can vary from KPL to KPL depending on their firmware versions.  It's one of those situations where you have to play with the level settings to find a setting that works for you.

All of my many Insteon keypads having the following options. Backlight and led brightness are one of the same. My eisy firmware is 5.7.0. You can set the led level from either the "led brightness" or the "backlight". I'm not sure why both options are displayed.

Once you set the led levels, the "backlight" will revert to 0/0 the next time you open the admin console, however the "led brightness" will correctly display the levels.

It's probably a bug that needs to be tweaked in a future firmware release.

Ah wow, thanks for the inputs, and yes @techman, that is the main screen for the hardwired "on/off", but there is at the bottom of the screen an "Led Brightness" that I set 4/2 for every keypad in the house.  In the day time you can just tell when it is on, but it is bright enough to read at night.  I have set the backlight to all kinds of numbers and when I close and re-open the admin panel, the screen shows 0/0 for the backlight.  The led brightness that I set does stick so I am trying to figure out exactly what this means.
