For instance, you can turn the microphone off or on by sliding the microphone switch on the bottom of the TV. When set to "off," the microphone is powered off and you'll see a red LED on the front of the TV. And even if you say the wake word, the TV won't be able to record or stream audio requests to the cloud.

If you have an Alexa-enabled remote, you can still use Alexa through your remote. Alexa will not start listening until your TV detects the wake word (for example, "Alexa"). Blue Light will notify you when the audio is sent to Amazon's secure cloud.
