Great tutorial, thanks a lot.

I have a problem with infrared, Netgear isn’t able to help me without seeing the camera.

I would like to ask you….

In the night the red leds light on but you see all black, there is no light entering in the lens system. I think there is a problem in the diaphragm… what do you think?

The first months it works correctly (except once when I see all pink, I fix it restarted the camera).

Thank you!
