Circle 2’s Night Vision works best under the following conditions:
- Night vision works up to 15 feet, so make sure the camera is up to 15 feet away from movement.
- The correct mount is selected in the Circle app (Settings > Camera Mount). Night vision will automatically update for optimal performance with your mount.
- The area you want to monitor is clear and unobstructed with no objects close to the camera in its field of view. The reflection of the night vision light from these objects may cause the automatic system to over-compensate, darken the image, and reduce visibility of objects in the distance.
- If your Circle 2 Camera is on a Window Mount, make sure the camera is in Window Mode (Settings > Camera Mount). In Window Mode, the infrared (IR) LED won’t turn on. This eliminates any reflection from the glass. If your Live View or recordings are not well-lit, we recommend that you use an external IR light, such as the LIFX lights, for illumination.
NOTE: When using the Window Mount with double pane (or more) windows, the camera's view and image quality may be impacted due to reflections through the additional layers of glass.
