Unable to stop notifications for "unrecognized" activity: added May 22
Some customers with a cloud video recording plan (CVR) are unable to turn off email or push notifications for the "unrecognized" activity category. We are investigating this issue. Please contact customer support if you have problems turning off these kinds of activity alerts.
Night Vision not activating: added April 23
Some customers report night vision suddenly stopped working properly or did not activate as expected. In some cases, power cycling the camera may resolve the problem: unplug the camera from power, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in to power. Then wait until night time or a dark environment to see if the red IR LEDs activate properly.
Our engineers are currently investigating possible causes for this problem. If power cycling your camera does not fix night vision for your camera, please contact customer support to log a trouble ticket so we can follow up with additional information.
Update May 9: we are currently testing a possible fix for this issue and expect to have test results early next week. If you have reported this problem to our customer support team, we will follow up on your trouble ticket when we have a fix in place.
Update May 22: we implemented a fix for this problem last week and all affected cameras should have been updated. If you continue to experience any issues with night vision, please contact customer support.
