Very Inconvenient IN-Command lighing control

Unless I am just missing something I just spent the first night in my new Montana 3720 and I find the control system for the lighting to be very impractical. The main interior lighting can be turned off and on from either the InControl panel or from one of our android phones. You can turn on either the lighing in the living room, the kitchen the hall or the ambient lighing. Or you can turn on all interior lights at once.

The problem is, if I go from the bedroom to the kitchen and it's pitch black, I'd either need to go downstairs using a flashlight or I'd need to turn on my phone, start the In-C app, enter the pass code, go the main menu and turn on the interior lights. It would be much faster to just turn on the hall light and go down to get a drink.

It would have been nice if they had put four rocker switches at the beginning of the hall way that would allow one to manuall over ride the control panel and turn the lights on.

Is there some remote control unit that I can purchas that will control the relays to the lighting directly?

The In-Control manual says that "seven mobile devices are able to be paired to the IN-Command at one time , abut only 1iOS and 3 Android devices are able to be actively paired."

Does "Mobile Devices" refer to another type of remote control?

Does anyone else find this set up inconvenient or is it just me?

You have hit on the reason we didn't want the Legacy package.
