How can I set Xfinity Home up to turn on lights when a camera detects motion?

@peter011, awesome question! If you go into the "Automation" section, you can see there that you can set up anything in regards to your lights, assuming that they are capable of linking with the Xfinity Home system. We use Phillips Hue here, and my best suggestion would be to go under that and set it all up for you. If you have any additional questions, feel free to send me a DM as well!

Type "Xfinity Support" in the "To:" line and select "Xfinity Support" from the drop-down list which appears. The "Xfinity Support" graphic replaces the "To:" line

I don't believe that you can have the camera turn on or off a light. Only the motion detectors can turn on lights. I have been asking for this option for several years now since the cameras came out with the ability to detect motion.
