When I first installed my video doorbell I had color night vision with the porch light on. Then it was gone after a few days. Now I'm getting color night vision with and w/o a porch light. I LOVE IT. Was there a recent software upgrade? See attached pic, street light is about 35 feet away and I can see the gey siding and white trim on the house, plus the beautiful sky.

MoFell,

 

If there is enough ambient light, the camera will not need to engage the night vision filter and the image will display as normal. If there isn't enough ambient light, night vision will be enabled.

 

In your attached image, the camera has determined that the amount of light present is sufficient, and night vision isn't enabled. This also is likely to occur when your porch light is on (providing it' is near the camera and illuminates the surrounding area).
