Is there any way to turn off the IR - infrared mode?
The little lights that shine in the dark seem to be on all the time.
This is the Smarthome IP Camera for $99 or so.

I did not find a post on this topic, and zilch on the www.
Amazon says that their version has a software OFF for this.
I can't find that anywhere.

Thanks.

Yes, there's a button on the software interface to turn off the IR lamps. Which app or interface are you using?

AHHHH. I am using the Google Browser with whatever it presents.
There are other options?!
I never tried the IE one - had so many problems with the ActiveX.
I'll give that a shot.

Wait a minute!
I just ran the IE interface. Nada.
I don't see any different controls.

Firmware is 11.22.2.38
WebUI is 2.1.18.1

Is there some other way to see the options here?

Many thanks for your time! Appreciate the help.

I'm looking at Server Push Mode, the interface that is compatible with Chrome/Safari/Firefox. When you look at the Live Contols, on the left is a control to pan & tilt and on the right are several buttons. From the top, left to bottom, right: scan up and down, stop scan, scan left to right, stop scan, turn on IR lamps, turn off IR lamps.

You are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
Now to see if they did any good.!
I'll have to wait until it is dark or something.

Thanks.
Why didn't I notice that!?

"most of us are not paying attention".
One of my first rules !!

Many thanks.
