Stealth Cam! How to disable the Raspberry Pi camera LED

 

Have you noticed that every time you use your Raspberry Pi camera to take a photo or video, that it lights up that annoying red LED on the front? Well, it doesnt have to be that way - it can be disabled.


To do this, we're going to simply edit the config file this can be done from a Windows machine (if you have a SD reader). But we're going to edit the file directly from our Raspberry Pi, we only need to add one line.

First up, we need to edit the config file.

sudo nano /boot/config.txt


Add the following line to the end of the file, then save it.

disable_camera_led=1


Next up, reboot your Raspberry Pi.

sudo reboot


Voila! The red LED on the Raspberry Pi camera, or NOIR camera has been disabled!
