Looking for a good way to show the alarm is armed at doors

I’m building a house soon, so I’m trying to think of how I want to integrate HA so I can do any wiring that is needed. One thing I’m considering is how to visually show that the alarm is armed at each of my external doors. I will have a wall tablet at the front door and garage door, but there will be at least 4 external doors with no wall tablet by them. I’m thinking about putting a small red LED in the door jam above the door that would give a red glow when the alarm is armed, but I’m curious what other people have done. Has anyone solved this problem a cool way?

I replaced my doorbell button with an RGB backlit version. Green for disarmed, blue for armed, red for tripped.
