Light on base station

If I want to hide the base station and I decide to shut off the light, does that mean that if the alarm goes off it won't even show the red light?

Hi @JoeBas, 

You are correct - if the Base Station's light is turned off, it will not show the red light when an alarm goes off. If you are worried about an intruder finding your Base Station, the Base Station does hide itself during the countdown before an alarm by turning off its light. Once an alarm sounds and its is illuminated red, the signal has already gone to our Monitoring Center.
