Deactivate the Night vision LEDs

Deactivate the Night vision LEDs

IR LED Control Deactivate the IR LEDs or set them to automatic. The automatic mode will be controlled by the photo sensor and the IR LEDs will be automatically switched on once it gets dark.
Infrared Cut Filter The IRCut filter filters the infrared light of the sun during daytime and is automatically removed when the camera switches to night mode - this allows using the IR LEDs to illuminate the surveillance area. You can deactivate this automatic feature here by permanently switching the camera to night or day mode.
Fixed Night vision Schedule The automatic IR LED mode is controlled by a photo sensor. In case that this sensor tends to activate the night vision mode too early, you can set a time schedule instead. Be aware that this schedule can only switch your camera´s IR LEDs from "Disabled" to "Automatic" - there is no mode to activate the IR LEDs constantly.
Activate IR LEDs at Here you can set the time, when the IR LEDs are set into automatic mode. Remember that this will only activate the IR LEDs if it is dark enough. The camera´s photo sensor will prevent the activation of the night vision mode during daylight.
Deactivate IR LEDs at The time you set here will be the time where the IR LEDs will be deactivated.
Current Illumination Value Not available in the camera models IN-9020 and IN-9010 The current brightness value measured by the camera's brightness sensor.
Thresholds Not available in the camera models IN-9020 and IN-9010 The upper and lower threshold that is used by the automation to switch your camera from day to night mode and vice versa.

Please be aware

If you deactivate the IR LEDs by night you might get false alerts from the internal motion detection. In this case, you will have to deactivate the motion detection during the night using the Alarm Schedule.
