Thanks MonkeyClaw. Did you use red or black paint?

That's what I did on the Carbon Monoxide detector, which was mounted in the bedroom.

I found some peel and stick plastic darkening film on Amazon (I thi it was call Dim Light) that is made specifically for that issue. It is a "static kling" material so does not leave a residue. It really works for us, and remote signals still work

I will trump your LED's with a dash radio that constantly blinks the entire display every 5 seconds and also changes colors! During the day it is no big deal but at dusk or night it is incredibly distracting. After reading the entire 30 page manual, which does not mention the blinking colored display, it became time for the electrical tape. On the list of projects is to change that #$#@ radio!

I used a black paint pen to match the plastic that the TV's and everything was made out of. I've never tried another color.

Black Sharpie...you can also use the sharpie to 'paint' the heads of bolts that are brighter than the rest of the install, whatever it is. I used one to cover the bolt heads of my new TV hanger.
