Removing LED?

Is it OK to physically remove the blue LED on the Zymkey 4? I am using the zymkey in a project where I cannot have an LED light up and plan to physically remove the LED to ensure that it doesn’t.


@tennisparty - You can turn off the Blue LED via our software API. Python:

python3 -c “import zymkey; zymkey.client.led_off()”

That’s great, do you know if that will permanently turn the led off I.e. no flashing when the pi is booting or powering down?

It does not turn it permanently off. You would need to turn it off each time at bootup.

Would it break the zymkey if I just de-solder the LED instead? This works for the raspberry pi LED’s as they are on separate circuits

That should be fine with our LED as well.
