Open the Lorex app > Device Settings. Then, scroll to the bottom to locate the ‘Camera LED.’ The LED button toggles between ‘ON’ and ‘OFF.’ Finally, switch On or OFF as you require. 

Below will go into more detail on different lights for the Lorex cameras and how to turn them off.

1. Turning Off Camera LED Lights 

An activity or status light, the Lorex camera LED, is situated next to the lens. The Lorex App is a handy tool for turning on and off the light of the security camera.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Lorex app > Device Settings.
  2. Scroll to the bottom to locate the ‘Camera LED.’
  3. The LED button toggles between ‘ON’ and ‘OFF.’
  4. It’s all up to you now.

2. Disabling Deterrence Lights 

Historically, security cameras’ primary purpose was to record evidence of an unfortunate occurrence. Just by having a security camera in place, you have a deterrent. With advanced technology, this is no longer the case. Lorex has active floodlight security cameras with white lights and a loud siren. These features work exceptionally well in stopping people in their tracks. (1)

Are your deterrence lights on? Do you want to disable them? Follow this step-by-step guide to disable your camera deterrence lights.

  1. Go to the Live View display on your Lorex app > Quick Menu> Main Menu.
  2. Insert your login details (username and password).
  3. Click ‘Events’ > Event Settings (on the side panel).
  4. From the drop-down menu, press ‘Motion.’
  5. On the top panel, click ‘Smd/Deterrence.’ Identify the channel of a connected deterrence Lorex camera. In the ‘Schedule’ field, click ‘Set.’
  6. You need to eliminate time frames from all the days’ schedules – in fifteen-minute segments. You may choose to click and drag or click. Deterrence lights are designed to be active at night (5 pm-7 am) by default. If you want to disable the deterrence lights, get rid of the schedule for all the week’s days for the chosen channel.
  7. Lastly, click ‘OK’ and then ‘Apply’ to record the performed changes.
