Infrared Nightvision

Your camera´s IR LEDs are switched on and off automatically by the internal light sensor. If you want to use your camera behind a highly reflective window or you are using your camera e.g. as a weather webcam and don´t need nightvision, simply deactivate the LEDs here.


Your camera provides a fine-grained access rights system that allows you to restrict access to certain menus of the web user interface and its underlying CGI commands. The minimum permission to access this menu is:

  • User Permissions: System Settings

User permissions can be modified in the user menu.

Web User Interface - 1440p Series - Features IR LEDs

IR LED ControlDeactivate 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 FilterThe 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 ScheduleThe 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 atHere 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 atThe time you set here will be the time where the IR LEDs will be deactivated.
PIR night triggerDeactivate the nightvision LEDs by default and only activate them when the PIR sensor detects movement in front of your camera.
Duration of IR activity when triggered by PIRSet the time the IR LED should remain on after a PIR detection.
Current Illumination ValueThe current brightness value measured by the camera`s brightness sensor.
ThresholdsChange the thresholds for the camera switching between black-white (night) and color mode (day). 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 or couple the internal motion detection with the integrated PIR sensor.

Additional Settings

Cameras with multiple LED sets come with additional settings. For example the model IN-8401 2k+ WQHD comes with "invisible" (940nm) night vision IR LEDs and a set of 850nm IR LEDs - that are stronger but can be seen when active as they emit a light red sheen. For this reason you might want to use them separately in different situation:
