So I’ve only had my Blink XT for around a week and a half I think. Daytime recording is great. I was having trouble with the IR settings (all 3) white washing faces at any distance. My new XT came tonight. I installed it in the same spot as the old tried all 3 settings and got better results but…
Ive never had any other security cameras besides a stick up cam I ordered at the same time. This XT has way better range of IR illumination but seems to be slightly inconsistent. I thought I had it all set up but I’d go into the garage come back to the same spot where I had a pretty clear face shot only to have my face white washed again.
Ive noticed a little further out it was pretty consistent and pretty distinguishable face image, but getting within 5 ft or less of the cam whitewash.
I tried mounting it above the service door facing into darkness with same results. Am I doing something wrong or is this normal. By the way I’m wearing a black t shirt and black hoodie.
1st picture is my original placement and I’m standing about 10-15ft out in black hoodie, navy pants.
2nd picture is moving in on it in black t, navy pants.
3rd picture it’s moved above door.
4th picture same spot I moved out a little off door step.
Does this look normal to you experienced users or am I expecting too much to have it not white wash?
