Hi wondering if pro 2 is hacked or something?  A car parked in front oh my house for like 10mins and it appears they turn off my night vision, cause everything became very black, and i can just see their headlights shining at the car in front... the night vision appears to turn back on when they drove away.

a little worried that they are scouting the area..

Not hacked as the video keeps recording as you said... more prob the headlights reflection off the white car in front provided enough light that the camera "thought" it didn't need the IR illumination and turned off.  ( you can hear the click )

I suspect there's enough light being reflected by the car ahead of the headlights causing the camera to turn off night vision. Note the color in various locations in the video, indicating that it's now recording in color. The easiest step is to rotate the camera down - having the street in view causes unnecessary triggers while people are only detected out to ~25 feet.
