21. How to get a good night vision picture
When the camera changes to night vision mode, if there is an obstruction within three meters of the lens, infrared rays will have a concentrating effect, which will cause the obstruction part to be extremely bright, and other screens will be darker, and the night vision effect will be poor. If the camera monitoring area is too far away (more than 33ft), o object reflects the infrared light back, and the night vision effect is not good too, it is like shining a flashlight into the sky and seeing nothing. (No matter where the camera is installed, make sure there are no obstacles within 3 meters of the lens)
If you do want to put the camera behind a glass, please go to the night vision setting page to select Color option, it will turn off IR led at night.
