Recieved a replacement camera for a camera that was staying in night mode. Put the batteries from the old camera in the new "replacement" camera and the battery status showed 60%. Two days later the batteries were completely drained with very minimal camera usage. Any ideas why?

the used batteries could have been weak and given a false reading when first put in.

 

Open battery door and replace with new batteries...

Go to settings and in that Camera, REMOVE DEVICE.  Then bring it back as if new with resync... this will also reset all to the defaults just in case.
