Option to increase light to be on to 5 minutes from 120 seconds when motion is detected

I have two Arlo lights  and they are hardwired so I am not worried about battery time, I would like the option to set them for 5 minutes for motion vs. 120 seconds.
My power went out and I turned The light to constant on and it ran for 3 hours on high and only consumed 25% of battery so it seems there is another power to support a couple more minutes of run time even on battery.


go to SETTINGS/my devices/light and > to edit

go to LIGHT DURATION, > to edit.

Pick time settings up to needs (10-20-30-60-always )

That is the setting for manually turning on the light. The motion trigger does not let you turn on the light for more than 120 seconds.

I am asking for a software update to turn on light for 5 minutes on motion.

Hey Chrisk2,


I'm moving your post to the Idea Exchange Board in regards to increase the fixed amount of time your light to be on when motion is detected. The Arlo development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. We greatly appreciate the community’s contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation.
