Hello, when I go into live mode at night, the spotlight will automatically come on. The spotlight icon is off but the led spotlight is on? I don't want spotlight on and it's off in the camera low light settings. When I actually turn on spotlight the night footage is in color and when I turn it off it's in black and white night vision even though the spotlight is still on..... The spotlight will turn off when I exit from live mode.

Funny thing, it turned out that the spotlight wasn't turning on at all. I was looking at live footage from one camera while other camera was live also. The effect was seeing the night vision activate and of course it looks like a spotlight when viewed through the night vision on there other camera. I hope that makes sense....

FlatBugger,

 

What happens if you manually toggle the spotlight on and back off? Does the spotlight turn off? Do you continue experiencing the same behavior?
