Hello! I searched for this but didn’t see anything so will ask here.
After I jacked my motion detection sensitivity to 80 I started getting some recordings of animals in the woods where I have the camera. During the recordings at night, when the recording first starts, the camera appears to get “confused” when first starting the recording. The first several seconds of the video the IR bulbs which illuminate the darkness seem to flash or vary in intensity maybe 3 times before they finally settle out. What I mean is the video will go super bright, then dim, then bright again, then dim… it basically fades from an almost completely white recording to dark until it finally settles out. Last night it caught 4 different animals and each time the camera did this. It makes it so only the last maybe half or so of the video clip is usable. Also, when it is doing this, the camera is evidently making a noise because you can tell the cat and raccoon, which I caught on video, heard the camera doing something because they turn around and come investigate the camera while the cameras IRs are varying in intensity.
Is this a firmware issue that will hopefully be fixed or do I have a defective camera? Thanks!
