What do the lights on my Portal TV mean?

This article applies to:Portal TV

The lights on your Portal TV are used to indicate when different parts of your Portal TV are in use or not in use:

  • Green light: A green light indicates when the camera is in use for video. When the green light is on, it may mean that the microphones may also be in use for some applications.
  • White light: A white light indicates when the microphones are in use by audio-only applications, like audio calls or voice interactions. A white light will also appear when your Portal TV is being plugged in and powered up, when alarms and timers are going off, and for incoming calls.
  • Red light: A red light indicates when both the camera and microphone are off.
