I have a Cam V3 mounted inside a window looking out. The onboard IR lights are switched off because the reflected glare from the window pane would blind the camera. Is the IR vision capability still functional with the IR lights off? If so, I will mount an outside IR flood light to illuminate the yard and extend the camera’s range at night.
Yes, IR capability is still functional with the onboard IR lights turned off.
Under Advanced Settings for your camera, When you select ‘Auto’ or ‘On’ for Night Vision Mode you are given an option to turn the onboard IR lights off if you wish. But the camera will remain in Night Vision mode.
