This is a old Wyze cam. In the past, the night vision photo was great. After some firmware update, I have almost no way to see with and without night vision at dark. See picture.
I believe that is the firmware problem because the I can see a moment of clear picture when when I switch between with and without night vision.
Your pictures didn’t make it into the post. Do you have before and after photos? And what is the actual firmware version on the camera itself? Thanks in advance!
What model camera? The old fixed-view cameras (the V2 and V1 of that series) couldn’t see in the dark without their Infrared lights on.
Definitely would like to see your pictures.
