They do switch to IR at night, and there are IR Leds that will light the areas near the camera. How well that works depends on how close things are to the camera.
The Nightvision works ok for me. My cameras are aimed towards my house - the furthest one is about 30 feet away. Generally speaking, if something is close enough to trigger the motion, then it should show up with Nightvision.
Can you give some more info on the specifics (perhaps even posting a screen shot)?
Maybe I should unplug then plug in my router, and reboot my pc a few times....
....I learned that they’re only good for 12h/day.
What does that mean?
Unless you have created some sort of schedule, night visions has nothing to do with the time of the day. It depends on the ambient light.
In other words, night vision kicks in at, er, night, when it is dark. Come daybreak, it will turn itself off.

Have you enabled night vision under the settings for the camera?
are you getting the awful Pixelisation issue I suffer with using the new app. It’s horrendous and online view very hard for any type of recognition but once recorded it’s fine.
I've the same issue.
how did you solve?

This image is looking at my back deck. You can barely make out the handle of a furniture dolly about 6’ in front of the camera. Worthless! The other camera in our driveway barely picks up the reflective license plates on the vehicles - no chance of facial recognition let alone detecting color of clothing if a person were to trigger it. Did I mention Worthless?
And I made NO assumption of color, just basic usability in the dark.

... let alone detecting color of clothing if a person if a person triggers it ...
It wasn't clear if you were talking about Nightvision or not in that remark, so I wanted to clarify.
Something is definitely wrong with the camera image that you posted the nightvision image for. I haven't seen anything like that from any of my own cameras.
Some of the skins can also interfere with Nightvision. But of course it could easily be a defective camera.
Overall they are not bed at night.
So this is your first camera then. That is as good as it gets unless you spend MUCH more money.
The Logitech Circle2 aren't any better and honestly none really are at this price point.
So cough up a couple of thousand dollars and get a hard wired security system, you'll be happy then. Just Say'in...
Nope. Planned to replace a couple of Samsung SmartCams I originally bought in 2012. 640x480, but excellent night vision. Main reason for replacing was wireless capability and better app. Had a couple of Cisco cameras inside, but never really used them.
From all I’ve read since my mistaken purchase, the night vision of the Pro cameras are much better than the pro2. I might try an IR floodlight and see if that’s the answer.

I think that's a good idea if you have one, though I am still thinking something else is going on with the one on the deck. I'd try swapping that camera with one of the other two.
