Outdoor Cam short light illumination

At night my Outdoor cam records for 12 seconds but the coyotes in the video are only illuminated by the IR for 9 to 10 seconds. The last 2 to 3 seconds are dark. Why do the IR lights turn off before the full 12 seconds?

this was a known issue on a certain firmware ( sorry I dont have the number handy) I would check to see if you have any updates waiting for the base station and the WCO.

It might depend on the outside temperature. My Outdoor cams have been running though the Western Canadian cold streak (highs between -20 and -25C and night time lows around -30 to -32C). The only problem I’ve noted is a shortened IR light on the really cold nights. I’ve assumed it’s a power thing.
