The unit has a plug in transformer adaptor which produces 5.2v DC and 1.5A approx. 8 watts, so an external battery in place of the transformer would keep it going a long time. The unit also has a battery capable of about 2 extra hours. The other devices like key pad are all batteries and last ages.
It's my bet that a 12 volt connection with a 5 volt USB connection would keep it going for a while. Talk to the Lowes support team or someone handy - it should be a no brainer.
