Hi @MHickman, could you possibly share a video showing an example of the view from your Video Doorbell 2 in the evening?
HI @MHickman, thank you for the permission. However, I am unable to see any of your videos. But I do look forward to seeing the view when you are able to include it
Thanks for sharing that video example @MHickman ! It definitely helps to see what the Doorbell is seeing. That light is certainly very bright, however the left side of the area looks dark still. Being that there are still dark areas, even though the light fully illuminates the entry way itself, it may be that the lens adjustement is catering to the entire environment rather than just the entryway.
If you want, let's try shining a light (flashlight, phone flashlight, etc) directly at the Video Doorbell 2 while video is initiating to see if it will adjust to color this way. Feel free to share a video of that test with the results, thanks again!
@MHickman, thank you for attempting this test, which does show the device is able to show in color daytime view when enough light is directly on it. So it seems that as Marley said there is currently not enough light shining on it in the evening for the device to be in daytime mode. It is intended functionality for the Video Doorbell 2 to not record in color when it's dark outside.
