Turn on/off backlight - By Touching the screen

Sun May 20, 2018 8:56 am

Hey All!
im using the 7" Official touch screen including case, im currently running the pi using its own dedicated tp link POE solution.

its currently running: rpisurv -
its primary use is a intercom/viewer to see who is at the front gate of a property, my question is this; can i touch anywhere on the screen to turn the backlight on and off, preferably only on as i know that one can set a timer to turn backlight off, after a timeout of no activity, what im trying to achieve is maximising the life of the official touch screen as this is a permanent solution.
