Hello, I have an eufy pan/tilt camera, and sometimes I face an issue with auto night-mode - when the room is completly dark, the camera turns night-mode on, but after a few seconds it turns it off, then on again, and off again… endless loop of night mode on/off. If I reboot the camera - it starts working fine, it “decides” to keep the night mode on.
The firmware is the up-to-date
In case the solution is unknown - is there a way to schedule reboot of the camera every evening?
Well, the only thing I could think of… besides a malfunctioning camera is, is there anything nearby that’s reflective / shiny surface that could possibly be bouncing back the IR~infrared LED lights back onto the camera thus causing the issue?
It’s the same for me, but the TV in the room changes the light level with different pictures and then the camera relays click in every few seconds. It would be great to set a time or threshold where you can determine when the IR should come on.
Bumping this thread. I have just purchased a eufy security 2k camera and I have the same issue.
The camera works perfectly during the day and switches to night mode if the room is too dark. But every evening when it is pitch black the night mode switches on and off every 5 seconds. It’s very disturbing and quite noisy, I have to disable night mode all together every evening to stop the noise.
Please provide a fix for this!
It is the end of 2022 and the problem has persisted all this time. Still present with the firmware 22.214.171.124!
Either this is a unacknowledgeable hardware issue, or EUFY simply don’t care. I don’t know which would be the worst
As an author of the thread I can only say I was unable to fix this issue (I had a long email conversation with Eufy about it, but without any working solutions), and in the end I returned the camera to the seller as broken, got my money back and bought a different camera (EzVIZ C6CN).
All in all I’m disappointed by the lack of solution.
