Lightbulb Stock Pulse Notification Behavior?

Can someone please once and for all confirm what exactly makes the pulse notification light flash when running stock 4.4.2 that came with the N5?

I've searched all over an nobody seems to know for certain what conditions activate the light without the use of a 3rd party app.

Every Android device I've owned always had a notification led for Missed Calls, New Emails, New SMS, New MMS, New VM, Charging the battery etc.

I find it hard to believe that you need an app such as Light Flow to enable these standard features.

Any help would be appreciated as I'm considering RMA'ing it as I can't get it to work for the life of me.

Missed calls, new email, texts, and voicemail: yes (just white). Charging the battery: no.

Make sure Settings->Display->Pulse notification light is checked, and that the Notifications you want are enabled in the individual app Settings (e.g. Gmail, Hangouts, etc). Also the light only pulses when display is off.

Thanks guys

I've already tried that among many other work arounds out there.

The only thing I could get to work is with text messages and even then sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
