  I've been using three different standalone numeric keypads for
  years. For me, customization has been a matter of 

  1)Elisp code
  2)Operating system 
  3)Whether console or gui mode. 
  4)If console, which emulator.

  I do note that there are all kinds of programmable keypads
  available from Amazon, but many are pretty spendy.

  There's an awful lot of things that can be done with just a
  ten-key pad. I even set up emacs so that I can switch my keypad
  from "navigation-only" mode to "special purpose" mode.

  In gui mode in linux, my emacs knows the difference between
  Control-Home and Control-Keypad-Home. (as an example)
