Upgraded to Gen2 board. 
As was setup on the Gen1 board, Output 16 on a LEM is connected to external status LEDs (and set as as a "Status" output in Comfigurator). LEM is upgraded too. 
On the Gen1 system, these LEDs used to flash in a Alert state (say on entry delay)  but now just show "armed" or "off" - no alert flash even though the keypad status LED may be flashing. 
Is this a Gen2 design or have I missed something obvious ?

Thanks for your feedbackI believe this feature was de-emphasized so that the flashing no longer takes place, as there were few people making use of it (and the flashing may cause other problems)
How do you use this led?

Sorry Chiu missed your reply...I have discrete status LEDs in a couple of external PIRs near the entry doors so I can check whether the alarm is on (or alerted) before opening the door.Useful to know it is a Gen2 "feature" and nothing I have done (or not done).

You can duplicate the feature by using an output and programming Flash Output Response in the Intruder Alarm Response
