    I don't think it's a mute function, although I have that from the phone app. If programmed for it and I hold down for several seconds, they go through a decreasing pitch chime series and they seem off. If I repeat, I get an increasing pitch chime series. However it is not the same as what I get when I close the battery door.

The difference is that the mute continues to drain your battery because your HA is still ON.

    I wonder if the KS7 can really be turned off simply via a programming switch where it doesn't actually continue to drain the battery. Or if it's simply a mute function? I highly doubt you can disengage the battery totally via a programming switch.

    Hmm. Now I'm not sure. Connexx calls it on/off function. However the mute button on the smart phone app makes the same chimes as when I use the "on/off" function so you may very well be right.

    According to a Costco video on the KS7, it looks like it's a "standby" mode, not truly off. Meaning it will probably still use up battery life, although probably slower than "on". The video shows the program wording at about the 45 sec. mark. At least this is my interpretation, ymmv!

    I guess the surest way to know is to just put it on standby mode at night instead of opening up the battery door and see if it still lasts as long as the other way or not. If it's truly off or standby with significant power saving, why would they want people to open up the battery door every night anymore, right? to save on wear and tear. Unless it's to vent off the humidity from the HA.

    Venting off humidity by opening the battery door is probably justified. I always do that before I put my HAs in the dryer overnight.
