I tried my outdoor stickup cam w/ battery inside my home just now.
it also clicks. but if I have it in disarmed/disabled alarm mode and mode settings for this cam are both set to OFF for no motion detect, no recording motion, and no live view the cam is silent. no clicking. good!
also if I turn both settings ON it clicks again. interestingly with the TV OFF and just turning the ceiling fan lights ON the cam clicks and turning light off the cam clicks again. each time changing to color mode and back to IR mode. It CLICKS.
if I have the TV ON usually the cam is in color mode and turning the ceiling fan lights ON and OFF just makes the image and color brighter or darker but it does not change to IR mode so since it stays in one mode Color, it is quiet. no clicking. unless the TV has a veey dark scene then it goes to IR and clicks. and later to color mode when it gets brighter and clicks.
But it is not as often as the stickup mini indoor wired cam.
so maybe this battery Stick up outdoor cam is the way to go for now?
it just costs twice as much. Smiley Sad
I suppose that the stickup mini might be ok if you have your lights cranked up while watching TV so it never goes to IR mode. But who watches TV that way?
But that indoor mini should not be playing with the IR when it is set to not ever be in live mode and not detecting motion or recording with motion. it should be OFF.
these two cams are coded differeny or there hardware is substantially different when it comes to the IR filter circuit.
please fix the indoor stick up mini.
