How do I disable Daylight sensor on Nest Wired Floodlight w Camera

Community Member

I have the nest camera with flood light and it works great, however, everytime it gets dark, it automatically comes on and there is no option in any menu to turn that off. I want it to only come on if the camera or motion sensor is triggered.



 as you can see in the app pictures, there is no option to simply turn it (daylight sensor) off, so everytime it gets dark, my floodlights go on till I manually go in and turn them off. I just don't want to have to do that every night.

For reference, when I do go and manually turn them off, the lights work as I want them and only come on for motion.

Hi Powertrip,


Thanks for reaching out here in the Community. We understand that you wanted to disable the daylight sensor of your Nest Camera with floodlight. However, we don't have any news to share about applying this feature to the Nest app or Google Home app. We're always looking for ways to improve and we'll take it as feedback. I'd suggest you send feedback about your concern using this link to let the Google Engineering team know about your concern. While they won't respond directly back to you, this is the best way to let them know about this. Please let me know if you have other questions or concerns as I will be locking this after 24 hours. Feel free to start a new thread and we'll be happy to help.
