Tap on the Light Settings tile for access to the motion zone Light Brightness controls. 

Motion Zone Controls

Your Motion Zone controls are where you'll adjust the range and distance at which motion will turn your lights on. Your lights use passive infrared detectors (PIR) to detect motion in three 90 degree arcs around the device. With this, you can adjust the range at which your lights activate.

Will the lights on my Spotlight Cam Wired turn on every time it detects motion?

Yes. As a default setting. the lights on the Spotlight Cam Wired will only turn on for motion events when it's dark. If it is dark outside and your lights aren't turning on you can adjust your motion sensitivity for triggering the lights. If it's dark outside and you don't want the lights to turn on at all, you can also manually control your spotlight through the Lights On/Off control.

Note: You will not receive any motion alerts until you set at least one motion zone.
