What does the 'microphone off' button on the Smart Home Security Base Station do?

Last updated

Camera Base Station only pays attention to what you're saying when it hears the words, Alexa or OK Security. As a first step to ensuring your security, voice controls are disabled in AWAY mode, so that nobody can walk up to Camera Base Station and issue any commands.

In addition to this, we included a ‘Microphone Off’ button, so you can manually turn off the microphones on Camera Base Station by pressing this button. You'll notice a red halo at the bottom of the device when its microphones are off and it can't listen to what you're saying. Simply press the microphone off button again to have the Camera Base Station respond when you say Alexa or OK Security.
