Can someone tell me where I can set my Pro 3 cameras to indicate that the camera is currently recording? There must be some way to set the LED indicator to come on when the camera has detected motion, is streaming, and/or is recording. All I see is an option to suppress the full-charge indicator in the options for my cameras. Thanks!

The camera on the Devices tab will show an amber motion icon (a ball with 3 lines for the app, a running man for the web) when recording. The camera itself can't be set to turn on its LED.

I'd use an app for a mobile device.

Thanks, that answers my question. Crazy that there's no option to set the camera indicator LED to show when the camera is recording. Tangentially, I thought that was a firm requirement for HomeKit compatibility, but I guess not.
