Go to the camera in question... Hit the play ( live stream ) button... while playing a "sun" will apper on the bottom of frame ...click on it and a slider bar will appear.

there are low, mid, high ( if I remember right ).

What do the other icons beneath the camera refer to?

the brightness contol is only an adjustment of the iris ... for a bright or lower light level seen by the lens.

The iris brightness for the camera shouldn't make any diff on the IR sensor.. it just effects the amount of light in to the camera section... they are separate.

 

if in doubt make a test and let us know your results.
