Base Station Light

I have a suggestion for the SimpliSafe tech people.  Would it be possible to update the Base Station software so that we have the ability to dim the ring of light when it is on.  I like the idea of there being a light to see the status of the system but it is so bright at night that we have taken to draping a cloth over it while watching TV.

Not likely that's ever going to happen.  You could instead, cover the light with a strip of colored window film (i.e. tinted film).

@chuckdenise57 another suggested approach: shut off all prompts and voice prompts and place in upstairs room hidden or in area not readily noticeable. I have had an SS2 base in no light, no sound status with a lamp shade over it and now the SS3 base sitting on a shelf in a back 2nd story bedroom.  No need to give an intruder an easy target.

You can turn the light off.

Hi @dandyDons,

You are correct. When an alarm is triggered, the light on the base station will turn off in an attempt to make the base station less conspicuous. Once the alarm is disarmed after an alarm, however, the light will begin to flash red to alert the user to the recent alarm event.

Hi @tgsg,

If you're asking how to disable the light on the Base Station of your All-New SimpliSafe system, we'd be happy to help! The status light on your Base Station can be easily disabled through the Keypad following these steps:

  • Make sure your system is in Off mode.
  • On the Keypad, press the Menu button and then enter your Master PIN
  • Select System Settings
  • Scroll down to Base Station Light
  • Pressing on the right side of the screen will toggle the light's setting between on and off

I agree. The light is really bright.  I’ve resorted to wrapping most of the blue light area with black electrical tape, leaving about 1 inch so I can see the light and know that it is activated. I have a white base station and It definitely ruins its sleek look though.
