The floodlight will self configure when you plug in your Outdoor camera and you will receive notifications on your mobile device that your floodlight is connected, as well as added to your camera. The notification on your Blink app home screen may only appear when you have a newly added outdoor camera and is not necessary for your floodlight to function correctly.
Tap OK to continue or you can select Customize Floodlight Settings.

The following settings appear for the Blink Floodlight. Learn more about your Blink Floodlight settings.
Battery: Displays the battery charge percentage for the floodlight. When the charge level drops below 20% you will see the following indication:
Light Activation by motion: When enabled, the LEDs will turn on if motion is detected. This setting is enabled by default. Note: Other light sources in the same area as the floodlight could limit or prevent it from turning on when motion is detected.
Auto Shut Off Timer: 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.
Light Brightness: This slider sets the LED brightness from a scale of 1-10. The default setting is 5.
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. The default setting is off.
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. The default setting is 5.
Firmware: This displays your current firmware version which may be automatically updated at certain intervals.
