Video Doorbell 3 Plus Black And White At Night

I had a Video Doorbell 2 (2020 Release) that was always nice, fairly sharp color at night.

Just installed a Video Doorbell 3 Plus and it is black and white at night. Is it supposed to be like this?

I read a review that says “Night vision: We were also impressed with the 3 Plus’ night vision, which was black and white thanks to its infrared LED sensors. Even when we had a friend getting in from a red-eye in the middle of the night, we could clearly see him and buzz him in without having to call or text.”

I’d much rather have the “night color vision” of the Video Doorbell 2 (2020 Release) back.

What a step backward.
