When operated and plate is open the easy to see led ring flashes, and when switch is operated again and plate is closed the led goes off. THE REMOTE VERSION (THIS IS THE ONE IN THE PICTURES) operates the same way, but allows you to turn off the main control unit remotely so that the flipper wont open until the unit has been re_armed with the remote fob, (very handy in certain situations) IT DOES NOT OPERATE THE FLIPPER REMOTELY!!! You still retain the same bar switch for normal operation.REMOTE MODEL IS 25 GBP EXTRA!!! PLEASE NOTE : this item may not be legal on a public highway.
