Use Daylight Sensor as Routine Starter

Community Member

Hi there,

Currently I use a times routine based on the sunset times to turn on the lights in our house. However, this does of course not account for very dark / rainy / overcast days where I would also like to turn my lights on. Would it at all be possible to use the Nest Camera With Floodlight's daylight sensor to start an automation routine? It would be great to be able to choose a level or darkness for this. That would be great.

Hey RalphS,


Thanks for visiting the Community. 


While you can personalize the actions of your custom routines, Nest Camera With Floodlight's daylight sensor isn't supported. We're always looking for ways to improve and we appreciate your feedback. I also suggest that you send feedback using your devices by saying, "Hey Google, send feedback," or by following the steps on this link. Let me know if I can assist with anything else, otherwise I’ll be locking this thread after 24 hours.
