Great feature suggestion but this is not the place to make them. The best way to get Blink to implement change is to leave reviews on Amazon indicating the features that you want. It is even more powerful if many others do the same.
This is why Blink is updating the firmware on the Mini to allow it to disable IR. There have been many requests on these forums over the years and some have even come with direct comments from Blink staff but very few have materialized. My personal observation is that Amazon is your best route.
Perhaps if you can find wide support for this idea from users that still use these forums, you can coordinate an effort to get Blink’s attention through support tickets / reviews. Good luck!
