We would like our security lights to turn on at night when motion is detected. Right now we only get notifications. I’m assuming there is a setting to make this happen but can’t seem to figure it out. Help???

Go to modes.

Select your light bridge, armed and then on a per light basis check the rule for each one to make sure that it turns on when motion is detected. This should have been the default when you installed them.

Are these Arlo lights? Or some other make?

Usually you have to wait until the following day for the latest firmware to load and take effect. The latest firmware has a Dusk to Dawn feature that allows you to set the darkness threshold that you want the lights to trigger at.
