As of today, night vision is being auto controlled using ambient light sensor, which is works perfectly well in most use-cases and scenarios. In my use-case, I am using one of the canary devices to monitor outdoor through glass window. At night, I face trouble capturing good footage under night vision turned on. This is due to reflections of IR LED lights back on to camera lens. Vision is so bad, one can hardly see anything. This scenario it would be perfect to manually turn off night vision and being able to capture meaningful footage, given my outdoor is well lit.
One other thread (FR-462) discusses introducing invisible IR LED’s which would certainly be useful (but may require us to buy new hardware) This feature help with use-case defined here. Hope its fits in your roadmap. Thanks.
