Automatic Gain Control for Video

There is an automated Gain control that is pretty good on teh Arlo Q, but if you have any thing near the night vision camera,  the "brightness" of that over powers the AGC and makes the rest of the video useless.... (too dark).  i would love to be able to manually adjust AGC, or disable it.  

 

Here are three examples.  Camera is in same place, room is dark.  great detail on itmes that are 10-15-20 feet away....

The second photo is when I move my hand (which is bright) you can see significant darkening in teh room. exactly how AGC is supposed to work, but really makes the utility very limited.

In the Third Photo, as i move my hand closer the entire room goes dark as the AGC fully compensates.
