Floodlight wired do not seem to have a Dusk-to-Dawn feature. It would be nice to have a way to enable the lights on low brightness during the night so there is some light available outside of the house.
Definitely and thank you for this suggestion! We will pass it along to the team
I'm glad that we have a scheduling feature on spotlight wired, but I feel like we're still missing real dusk to dawn feature.
Ideally, we'd be able to set a schedule for the lights with user-specified brightness which turn on full brightness when motion is detected.
No scheduling = Pitch black
With Scheduling = insanely bright all night (or whenever the schedule is for).
Happy medium = Brightness at 50% (or whatever) with full brightness at motion.
This is basically how the path lights function now.
This is an excellent feature request @enviouspantheon! In fact, you've inspired us to create a feature request thread for Smart Lighting, and we've made your post the first in the thread. Thanks for sharing
I have a Floodlight Cam installed in my back yard. When I am in my back yard in the evenings, it is very annoying to have the lights turn on and off while I'm trying to enjoy the patio in my back yard.
I would like to be able to pause or snooze the floodlights so that motion does not turn them on for a period of time, similar to the existing feature that allows me to snooze motion alerts.
I would also like to pause the recording of video for a period of time, as it is not needed or wanted when I'm in my own back yard.
Hi neighbors! Just wanted to let you know, Dusk to Dawn feature is now available for Floodlight Wired and Transformer. Head to the device and click 'Light Schedules' > Add Light Schedule > add new schedule. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns!
Please add the ability to link devices for only certain time periods of the day. I would like to link the motion detectors for all of my path lights to all of my video cameras at night time but not link them in the daytime. In the daytime, the path lights have too many false motion detection events due to moving shadows, direct sunlight, etc. And, in the daytime, the wired cameras have really strong motion detection by themselves. Whereas at night time, the wired cameras seem to have much weaker motion detection and benefit from being linked to motion detectors on nearby path lights. At night, the path lights seem to have reasonably accurate motion detection and trigger nearby cameras appropriately.
Right now, if I link my path lights to my video doorbell pro, I get 50 false motion detections in the daytime and then 50 random videos cluttering my history log. I can turn off notifications, but it still clutters the history log and drowns out more significant events in the history log. If I do not link the pathlights to the video doorbell at all, then the doorbell camera can sense all motion sufficiently in the day and only triggers for meaningful events. However, at night time, people have to get within a few feet of the doorbell for it to trigger. Whereas, at night, if I link the path lights to the doorbell, then the camera starts recording when people are still 15 feet away from the front door.
