Well unfortunately I’m using an SPDT switch to monitor garage status and I need the “closed when garage is open” side to ensure that the garage can only be closed remotely, not opened. So I have to use the “closed when garage is closed” side for status… unless I want to put more hardware into the setup.

Obviously the LED will reach lifetime more quickly if it is always on. I guess though since LED lifetimes are ~10 years then I won’t worry too much about it but was just curious.
