Home Security Cameras

Why does the home security cameras some times show in color and other times display in black/ white on home screen and mobile device? I would think it’s the quality of the lighting, but it displays that way either with the light on or off.

My cameras only do that at night.  Do you know what the make and model of your cameras is?

If the light is dim then the camera IR lights will come on and the picture will show in B&W.  If the lights are on (red lights) when it is bright then there might be something worng.  Just because a near by light is on doesn't mean that the area if bright enough so that the IR will turn off.
