How to find the light switch on the Firefly wireless panels

I have read a couple different threads complaining about the flat firefly panels that turn on the lights. The issue is they aren't backlit so its very difficult to turn on the lights in the dark or for that matter, anytime.

Here is what I did with all the unlit light panels. I bought a small piece of thin black foam with sticky back tape on it. I cut it into about 1/2" by 1/4" pieces. I then peeled off the backer and stuck one on each panel over where that rooms light switch is. That way you just feel for the panel and then the raised foam. Bam, you found the light switch. Push on the foam and you have light!

This has made it so easy to turn on the lights in the dark or even in the daylight without having to look. Took our 9 year old grandson with us just recently and he asked where the light switch was. I had him close his eyes and I ran his hand over the switch. He felt the foam and pushed it. He never had any problems turning on the lights for the rest of our trip.

Hope this helps. Maybe others have come up with fixes.

Totally agree it would have been much nicer if they were backlit or even put little brail bumps on the plastic. I went to Lowes and bought the little clear round bumpers and just stuck one on each panel. I even put one on the awning light and cab light in the front panel by the door. I also use them to protect the doors that when open will hit something as in the bathroom door when the slides are in will hit the opposite cabinet.
