This feature can be useful when you are trying to identify a node to rename it or for troubleshooting purposes. The light will stop blinking when:
 
  • The Linksys app is closed
  • You move away from the nodes page 
  • 20 seconds have elapsed 

If you haven’t identified the node after it stops blinking, just tap on the Blink node light again.
