New Arlo Security Light Feature: Dusk to Dawn Sensor
With the flexibility of placing your Arlo Security Lights in many different conditions, light from the surrounding environment can have an impact on whether or not your Arlo Security Light will turn on when motion is detected. Your Arlo Security light has a special ambient light sensor that automatically measures the amount of light in its surroundings. In a bright environment, your light may not turn on but you will still receive motion alerts, this allows your Arlo Security Light to conserve battery when turning on the light isn't necessary. With the new Dusk to Dawn feature, you now have more control over the ambient light sensor threshold and when your Arlo Security Light will turn on when motion is detected.

To gain access to this new feature, you will need the latest version of the Arlo Mobile App available from the app store and the latest firmware for your Arlo Security Light and Bridge.
Recently purchased 3 security lights with bridge. Light would not turn on during daytime conditions. So I read this article & tried to adjust the setting which procedure was indicated above & no such option existed in my Arlo App. Downloaded app on 9/6/18. So I imagine this is the current version. Help Plz?
How recently did you set up your lights? You will need the most recent firmware update installed to access this new feature. What firmware version do you see for your bridge/lights when you login to your Arlo account and navigate to Settings > My Devices > select your bridge/light > device info > firmware.
I will check today but the devices firmware was updated on 9/11/18 & Installed the app not long before then. I will redownload the app & try to update all light devices if needed. If such resolutions to my problem arent the answer, what would you suggest is my next step?
I have reinstalled the app and still have the problem
Has the firmware on the two lights with the issue updated to the latest (same version as the one that is showing the dusk to dawn sensor as available)?
Great! Glad to hear you're up and running. Take a look at the links in the original post if you have any additional questions about the Dusk to Dawn feature.
