Adafruit SCD-41


I have an Adafruit SCD-41 connected to an Enviro+ on a Rpi0. It is running on a custom Python script based on the examples for the Enviro+ and SCD-41.

Is it possible to turn off the LED on the SCD-41. I want to use it to monitor CO2 in my bedroom but the LED is very bright.


I also don’t understand why Adafruit puts all these LEDs on their breakouts. But in contrast to cheap Chinese breakouts, they also put a jumper on the board (at least on the newer ones). So you can just cut the trace on the top-side near the LED. If you later need the LED again, you can just add a solder-blob and that’s it.

On boards without jumpers I use my soldering iron…
