Cameras

After dark I can’t see anything on my cameras. Is there some way to get a better view without installing lights all over my front yard?

Re: Cameras

I had that problem and the only way I got around it was to aim the cameras at an area that had the front porch and back porch lights on at night with a neat light switch that has a timer that turns them on at night and off in the morning.

Re: Cameras

Are the cameras the Xfinity Icamera2 or Icam? If so then they should have IR.  You should be able to see 40-50 feet in total darkness with them.  Look at the cameras when it is dark and there should be red lights showing.  If not then there is something wrong with them.
