To set up your new Camera Floodlight, please make sure it’s successfully installed, and that the status LED on the bottom of the motion sensor is flashing red.
This flashing red status LED means that your Camera Floodlight is ready to be paired to your Kuna App Account! If your Camera Floodlight has not been installed yet, please refer to our installation instructions.
Step 1 – Download the Kuna App
First, download the free Kuna app from the Apple App Store (for iOS) or the Google Play Store (for Android). The newest version of the Kuna mobile app supports all iOS devices running iOS9 and above, as long as they have Bluetooth 4 capability, and all Android devices supporting Bluetooth LE and Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) and above.
You will need to create an account specifically for the Kuna app, even if you have created a separate account for the online store. If you already have a Kuna app account, you can skip to Step 3.
Step 2 – Create an Account
When you open the Kuna app for the first time, you will see the login page. Click the “Get Started” button to create a new Kuna account.
Once you select Get Started, you’ll be prompted to add your name and email address, and to choose a password for your Kuna App Account.
As soon as you have re-entered your password, click Next on the top right-hand corner of the screen. Then confirm that you would like to use that email address for your Kuna account, and you’ll be all set. Your Kuna account has now been created, and you can skip to Step 4!
Step 3 – Log In To Your Kuna Account
If you already have an account, you will log into the Kuna app using your Kuna account email and password. First, click the Log In button on the Welcome screen.
Once you click Log In, you’ll be prompted to log in using your Kuna account email address and password. If you don’t remember your password, click the Forgot Your Password? option to reset your Kuna account password.
After entering your Kuna account email address and password, tap “Next” on the top right-hand corner of your screen. You’re now signed into your Kuna account!
Step 4 – Pair Your Camera Floodlight to Your Account
Once you log in to your Kuna account, you will see the Devices tab. If you have not yet paired any Kuna Powered Devices, or if you do not have shared access to any devices, you will see the Welcome screen below. To pair a device from the Welcome screen, tap the “Set up new device” button.
If you already have shared access or a paired device, you will see a thumbnail of all the devices you currently have access to – like the screen shot below. In this case, you’ll tap the Device Plus button on the top right-hand side of the screen.
Once you have tapped either the Device Plus button or the Add Device button, you will be prompted to choose the type of device you would like to pair with your account. In this walk-through, we’ll be setting up a Camera Floodlight, so choose that option by tapping on the picture.
Because this process uses the Bluetooth on your mobile device, you will need to be close to your Camera Floodlight. We recommend holding your mobile device no more than 5 feet away from your light during this initial pairing process.
If there are multiple Smart Security Lights in the area, like in the screen shot below, the mobile app will tell you which one is the closest. The one that you are pairing should have the strongest Bluetooth signal, so make sure that you’re standing close to it. If the app displays multiple devices, the one you’re setting up should have the strongest Bluetooth signal. Make sure you’re standing close to it.
Once you have identified the closest device, tap that device’s name to continue the setup process. If there is only one device in the area, then you can choose that one.
If you are setting up multiple Smart Security Lights, you will need to go through this set-up process for each new Smart Security Light, starting at Step 4. This allows you to set different locations and WiFi networks for each Smart Security Light, if you wish.
Step 5 – Choose a Name for Your Camera Floodlight
After selecting the Camera Floodlight that you would like to pair, the mobile app will prompt you to choose a name for this new light. The mobile app automatically suggests a few of the most popular names, but you can also choose a custom name. In this setup flow, we will choose the name “Garage” for our device.
Step 6 – Connect Your Camera Floodlight to WiFi
Now that you have chosen a name for your Camera Floodlight, it’s time to connect it to your home’s WiFi network. The mobile app displays all of the WiFi networks that it is able to find in the area. Make sure that your home’s WiFi network displays at least two bars in the mobile app. If your WiFi network shows less than two bars, or is not displayed in this section, move your wireless router closer to your Smart Security Light.
Once you have located your home’s WiFi network, tap on the network name to select it and move to the next section. In the screen shot below, we will select the WiFi network “kuna”.
Once you have selected the network for your Camera Floodlight, click into the WiFi password section and enter your home network’s WiFi password. We suggest using the Show Password function to ensure that your password is entered correctly.
Once your WiFi password is entered correctly, click the Connect button in the top right-hand corner. Your Camera Floodlight will now connect to your home’s WiFi network!
Step 7 – Select Your Timezone and Location
Your Camera Floodlight will use the timezone to determine sunrise and sunset times for your location. The mobile app will automatically suggest the timezone your mobile device is set to, but you can also select a different timezone. In this setup flow, we’ll choose “America/Los Angeles”.
After you set your timezone, we’ll choose the city that your Camera Floodlight is set up in. The city information is used for the sunrise and sunset times for your light schedule. The Kuna app uses your approximate location to make your light schedule more accurate. You DO NOT need to provide your full address.
If you have set up any previous devices, the mobile app will suggest a city for you. Otherwise, you can click “Enter new location” to choose a new or different city for your device.
Step 8 – Select a Detection Sound
Your device can play a prerecorded message when motion is detected, as a way to greet or alert visitors. To use the default Chime sound, select “Yes – Use Defaults”.
To change the sound, or turn the sound off, select “No – Change Greetings”. Then, select a new sound, or “Off”, and tap the arrow in the top left-hand corner to go back to the setup process.
Step 9 – Set Up Your Light Schedule
The mobile app will suggest using the default settings – turning the light on at dusk and off at dawn. If you would like to keep the default settings, click “Yes – Finish Setup”.
If you would like to change the default settings, click “No – Change light schedule”. Here, you can make your own customized adjustments. Select “Set” in the upper right-hand corner to save your settings.
Unlike other Smart Security Lights, the Camera Floodlight allows you to dim the lights directly from the app, in addition to turning them on and off! The dimmer slider is located in the camera thumbnail – on the Devices page of your Kuna app.

Step 10 – Finish Setup and Update Firmware
Once you click “Yes – Finish setup”, you’re done and ready to start using your new Camera Floodlight! If you need to set up any other devices, simply click the “Set up more devices” button.
IMPORTANT: Many of your Kuna App features will not work correctly until your firmware is up to date. You can wait for it to update automatically, or update it manually by tapping the Update Firmware button in your Camera Settings. To learn more about updating your firmware, click here.
