I do not know of any other way to use it unless you have the remote. Hope this helps.
Gustavoerod - Your assessment is probably correct as it makes sense with the intermittant nature of the left light, which is why I wasn't leaning toward an alarm. I would love to know what it would take to get my hands on the remote for this option. Were you able to program the light on the right to NOT blink every 3 seconds and only blink when there is radar activity, or is this just the way the system alerts you that it is functioning?

Thanks so much for this response! I will have to borrow a friend's radar detector and see how it matches what the lights are telling me.
