Floodlight does not stay on for long after movement. Have it stay on longer than 2 mins.

With any other modern floodlight, there is a duration setting after motion, typically between 2-20 minutes.  However, on the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight, the maximum time after motion is sensed is about 2 minutes max.  I realize you can turn on the floodlight in the app, and it supposed to stay on longer, but that is not what I am looking for.  The other floodlights around my house, including Ring, stay on for 15 minutes after motion is detected.  Why hasn't Arlo caught up with the times yet?

Thanks for posting your idea! Our development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. We greatly appreciate your contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. 


I should have stated that this floodlight is WIRED.  The only benefit of paying an additional $50 for the required AC adapter is that I can now set my brightness to 100%...whoopie.  However, I cannot allow the floodlight to turn on when motion is detected and stay on for an additional 15-20 minutes if I want.  WHY???  My dumb floodlights do, my Ring floodlight does....but Arlo doesn't.  This feature NEEDS to please be added for wired floodlights.  Thanks.
