ESC-HFW2100 Night mode problem
« on: December 29, 2014, 06:39:38 pm »
Hi: Have had these cameras for over a year or so now, have 5 of them all running along well on BI until a few weeks ago the one at my front door does not have a usable picture unless there is a light on to see with.
The IR lights switch on at night but the camera does not appear to be going into night mode?
If there is a light on in the drive or at the door the camera is on it has a good picture.
Works perfect during the day....   I am guessing the IR cut filter is not activating at night time, any suggestions for a fix for this ? Has anyone taken one of these apart ?
I am in Canada & sending it back to Empire will be a PITA,,,

Thanks...

One of my ESC IPC1-V 2.0 cameras is doing exactly the same thing. I have five of them but only one has the problem. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but will ship it back to ESC for a warranty repair soon. I haven't tried taking it apart because it might void the warranty. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a common problem with these ESC's.  :(
