@Billyjack5 To clarify, the camera itself will detect Day vs Night as I mentioned in the review BUT there is no profile / schedule option to set when Day/Night kicks in (its an auto switch based on brightness and you can set a brightness value for it to kick over at). However, you cannot state that at 6am it is now daytime for example.Wildcat, in your initial review I think you mentioned that the exposure and shutter (and may all other camera conditions) on this camera do not have day/night mode and one would need to have one set of settings to accommodate both day and night conditions. I certainly could have misread it, but if that's the case, is the camera amenable at all to being used outdoors where there is sun during the day and darkness at night?
Now, while that is certainly a limitation (in comparison to standard, non traffic based i.e. IPC cams), the camera does allow you to configure settings for Daytime, Night, Dawn/Dusk separately. This plus the opportunity to set IR light into day/night mode helps a lot. Then all you do is dial in shutter manually to accommodate the FOV lighting etc throughout the day in a range (i.e. setting at a minimum of 1/500 or 1/1000 to /1/4000 at the high end) gives you enough scope to be able to set and forget in most cases. On top of this, being able to set Plate Light on or off + Front & Backlight then IR intensity for 'general' vs 'as vehicle passes' ensures that you are covered in most situations.
Therefore I don't think this is a problem IF you dial in the camera (as I always advocate for) for the conditions, FOV and target variables I mentioned above.
