Controlling your Floodlight Settings

Floodlight mount settings

The floodlight self configures when you plug in your Outdoor camera to the floodlight mount. You will receive notifications on your mobile device that your floodlight is connected and added to your camera. The notification on your Home screen only appears when you have a newly added Outdoor camera and and tap OK to continue.

Floodlight Settings

The settings for the floodlight mount can be accessed in two ways.

1. Tap More settings icon at the bottom right of the device's thumbnail image. Then select Device Settings and Lighting Settings.
2. In Live View, tap More and then Device Settings in the More Actions menu.

The following settings appear for the Blink Floodlight. 

Battery Level  
Displays the battery charge percentage for the floodlight.

Light Brightness
This slider sets the LED brightness. The default setting is 50%.

Motion Activation
When enabled, your floodlights can be set to turn on automatically when motion is detected.

Timeout after Motion Activation  
This setting controls how long the LEDs remain lit after the detected motion stops. You can chose between 15 and 30 seconds, 1, 2 and 5 minutes. 15 seconds is the default.

Daylight Mode  
When enabled, the LEDs will activate when motion is detected during certain daylight hours, when the outside light is limited like at dusk and dawn. The LEDs will not activate when there is an abundance of outdoor light, often during midday hours. Note: This option only appears for Floodlight mounts compatible with Outdoor (3rd Gen) cameras and is on by default for the Outdoor 4 Floodlight.

Daylight Sensitivity  
This setting only appears when "Daylight Mode" is enabled and controls the sensitivity of the lights during daylight hours. Lower setting values only activate the LEDs in darker conditions and higher values will activate the LEDs in brighter conditions.

This displays your current firmware version which may be automatically updated at certain intervals.
