Is it possible to make a block, and then a device, were you can turn parts off the blocks visibility on/off?

In my example I´m working with firesecurity and what a block of a smokedetektor to be able to show it´s detectionradius, and I want to be able to turn the radiuspart of the block on and off but still have the smokedetektor visible.

I think you'll want to make a separate block for the radius that you can assign to the device of the detector, then assign that blocks' visibilty for the device as needed.
