This thermostat does not appear to have a brightness setting feature, what it does have is an option for the back light to be turned on or off. You might verify no adjustment feature by going into the settings menu and scroll through to see if there may be a brightness level feature, if not then the back light is a factory default level or it can be turned off at the switch on the back of the thermostat.
