I’ve had my wired Spotlight Cam for about a month now, but the below behavior started today.
When the spotlight LEDs turn on, the camera stays in IR/night mode. Up until today, the camera switched to day mode exiting night/IR mode any time the spotlights turned on. I still have the LED brightness set to max for the lights and haven’t changed it.
How is this SUPPOSED to work, and why would it change? I checked the last month’s worth of video caught at night. Every single video where the light turned on the camera exited IR mode. I couldn’t figure out tonight why my video had a greenish tint with the spotlights on. Speculating it was staying in IR mode, I temporarily disabled color night vision and re-checked. Sure enough, with the spotlights on, the green tint was gone, but the video was in black and white night vision.
I’ve had my Floodlight cam since about March, and every time the lights turn on the camera switches out of IR mode. My Spotlight has done this too since installing it in Sept until tonight.
