Toggle to disable the IR leds without disabling night vision

I have an Arlo Ultra 2 VMS5240

I have been through the video settings and also the rules under the Mode options and haven't been able to find a setting to toggle that disables the IR LEDs but leaves the night vision feature turned on.

I want the night vision feature to be on but the IR LEDs off. Due to camera positioning I need the built in IR LEDs off. I also have no need for the built in IR LEDs to be on as I am using an external illuminator.

This feature is common on a lot of other manufacturers such as Reolink, D-Link, Ubiquiti etc

Can that option to toggle off/on IR LEDs but leave night vision on be added please.

I know the camera can do it as when you go to the live stream at night with night vision off the image that appears initially shows that the night vision is working and the leds are off.
