Night vision goes on and off

I purchased the stick up indoor outdoor wireless security camera and it arrived yesterday. I installed it in my backyard and checked in out it last night to find that the night vision was turning on for 3 seconds and then off for 3 seconds. This continued indefinitely and is foing it again tonight. The battery is fully charged and i toggled different settings like color night vision on and off. Ehat else can i do? Is it defective?

Have any lights near or interfering with the operation of your camera? Though not every 3 seconds, when some of my outdoor lights turn on/off it toggles the night vision off/on as well.

No its completely dark in my backyard.

Hi @Sunbird. Do you have the Snapshot Capture feature enabled? If you do have it enabled, what Snapshot Frequency do you have set? When you say the night vision is turning on and off, do you mean you’re seeing the infrared lights on the Camera going on and off? Or do you see the night vision turn on and off while reviewing the Live View or a recorded motion event?

I do have snapshot capture set to on for every hour. My issues os when i click into live feed after dark the infrared light while live turns on for 2 seconds and then off 3 seconds. It does this over and over while in live feed. I imagine it would do it for a recording of an event durong the night. If it did i would probably miss very important opportunities to see what was really happening.


This is a live feed from last night i recorded.

HI @Sunbird. Chiming in for Caitlyn here. Thank you for sharing this video. I would first try to perform a reset on your Stick-Up Cam to see if that will prompt the device to behave normally. You can perform a reset by pressing and holding the setup button for 20 seconds, then releasing. Once the reset is complete, you can reconnect the device to WiFi. Monitor how the cam behaves at night and if this issues persists, please give our support team a call at one of the numbers available here. If you are outside of the US, please visit here to see how to contact support. Feel free to let us know how this goes.

Hi @Sunbird. My team has been looking into this concern and they’d like some additional information. Is it ok if I send you a direct message with a few questions?
