How do I check the battery life of my Anyplace Dimmer or Scene Keypad?

You can check the Anyplace Dimmer battery life by following these steps:

  1. Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner

  2. Select "Controllers"

  3. Select the Anyplace Dimmer you want to test

  4. Tap the “⋮” in the upper right.
    Note: You can only see the 3 dot menu ( ⋮ ) if you do not make edits to the device you are controlling. If edits are made then the menu changes to "save".)

  5. Tap the "Info" button at the bottom of the screen

  6. Press the button on the Anyplace Dimmer itself

  7. The batteries will show "Good", "Low", or "Change Batteries"


If the batteries say "ok" or "replace", or if you are seeing erratic behavior we recommend replacing the batteries. In normal use, they should last a couple of years. They may last less time if the dimmer is used very frequently or if it is frequently added and removed from the account or regularly reprogrammed.

To replace the batteries in the dimmer, you will need 3 - 2032 3V cell batteries.

Please follow these steps when replacing the batteries in your Anyplace Dimmer.

  1. Remove the 3 old batteries from the dimmer 

  2. Slide one 2032 cell battery into place

  3. Turn the movable dimmer over and you should see the red status light ON and then OFF

    - After the red status light turns OFF, you can insert the remaining 2 replacement batteries and you're done.

    - If the red light does NOT turn OFF, continue to step 4

  4. Remove the single replacement cell battery that you just inserted

  5. Wait 15 seconds

  6. Slide a single replacement battery into a different battery slot

  7. Again, ensure that the red status light turns ON and then OFF before inserting the remaining two batteries

    - If the red light does NOT turn OFF, start over at step 4
