Setting Up a Light Schedule – Legacy App

This article is for legacy app users. Check out this article if you have Kuna App version 2.0 or higher.


You can set when your Kuna light turns on and off with a light schedule and motion detection.

Tap the Settings Gear for the light you want to adjust in the Cameras tab of the app. Then scroll down to the Light section and tap Light Settings.




Kuna's Light Schedule settings are fully customizable. For example, if you want your light to turn on automatically in the evening, but off at night to save energy, you can choose Dusk for when the light turns on and 10 PM for when the light turns off.

Kuna uses the light bulb to provide full-color HD video at night. If you aren't planning to leave your light on all night, make sure Motion On is set to Night. If you want the light to turn on whenever your Kuna detects motion, select Always.



Your Kuna uses your general location to set your Dusk and Dawn times. For information on how to set up or change your location, click here.

If you have either your Dusk or Dawn settings turned on, you can also use the Dusk and Dawn offset timers to fully customize your light schedule.



For the Dusk Offset, you can set your light to turn on up to one hour before dusk, one hour after dusk, or anywhere in between! The Dawn Offset allows for the same flexibility, but for the light turning off at dawn.

If you have your Motion On set for either Night or Always, you can also customize your Motion Timeout – the length of time that your Kuna's light bulb stays on after it has picked up motion.



The default times are 30 seconds and 5 minutes, but you can also set a custom time for up to 60 minutes.

If you have trouble finding the Motion Timeout or Dusk/Dawn offset times, please make sure that you have the latest version of the Kuna mobile app installed.
