Is the distortion on objects that are moving at night?
I am having the same issue. Interested to hear about the best practices here.Yes. Stationary items are fine. The object moving is clear until it’s paused, then it gets blurry and distorted. It’s on playback and mainstream, so it’s at max resolution.
Thanks. I will grab a sample tonight. As far as exposure, when I’ve tried to adjust night, but then when day rolls around, it’s over exposed and I can’t seem to figure out if you can set night and day setting and get them to switch automatically.If you could post a short clip at full res it would be helpful, do moving things close to the camera (say 6-10ft) also do this? Or is it just things further away?
Are you using IR or forcing color at night? Color mode at night requires a lot more white light than most think.
The two most common things to improve low light performance are light and exposure.
> More light. Add IR or white light. This is the #1 issue at night. Cameras need light.
> Faster Exposure. Try setting to 1/30 or even faster gradually and test results. Night exposure usually needs a faster shutter than daytime where the Auto setting usually suffices.
You can. Install the latest firmware. Then on the profile tab bigredfish shows above, an additional auto day/night setting will appear. Before you set it to auto day/night, go to the conditions tab, and set the day exposure and night exposure, then go back and set the profile to auto day/night.Thanks. I will grab a sample tonight.

Once nice thing is that the 2231 is a popular model, so any firmware thread that Andy started with the update attached should have a lot of replies from the folks who went first. Those threads should give you a better feel for how stable the firmware is.Awesome, thanks guys! I will give all of the above a try. I’m nervous about updating the firmware because of some of the horror stories I’ve seen, but I will give it a shot.
So I played around with the settings and I don't feel that I have made an improvement. Still getting blurry images when pausing on moving objects (me walking past the camera) at night. What am I doing wrong here?I am having the same issue. Interested to hear about the best practices here.
