Hello. Ambient light isn’t the cause as this is on a farm. We own the property for all around it and there is no lights.
The IR light turned off does remove the halo, but it of course removes the night vision so essentially its darkness. The Kami has really impressive night vision, but not on this one.
I will move the camera. I have 2 more unopened in the van, I will try one of them in the same location and see if it the same.
I once had an issue with the Yi outdoor cameras, 2 of them. They would turn off at in the evening. K was absolutely stumped why they would turn off and not turn on again until the morning. Eventually, trial and error i found the solution. It was the plug the USB connects to. Yi supplied a US plug so I used a pair of UK plugs I had. I eventually realise the plug I was using was only 0.5a as opposed to 1a on the original. So everytime the darkness would trigger the IR the extra requirement of electricity would not be supplied by the weaker plug and the camera would shut off!
I’ll try swapping cameras and see if it works, but I know for sure it wasnt an issue with the Yi camera in the exact same spot…
