Night time is a problem with many cameras, and has been a problem for a long time.

There's two ways to fix the problem.

1: Buy a new camera that is better at low-light situations (night)

2: Get more light.

Most outdoor CCTv camera have IR light embedded.
Plus for IR light is the light is invisible to humans, but allows the camera to see at night.
Extra IR light can be mounted as needed.

Minus for IR light, is you only get black/white image.

You can also mount visable light and choose between allways on or activated by motion, but if activated by motion, your camera might need time to adjust, in which time whoever triggered the motion might not be seen on camera during that time.

Hi,
This is my first ever post on CCTV Forum so go gently on me, but could it be that your camera shutter speed is very slow in low light, meaning still images like parked cards come out reasonably sharp, but that moving objects like people come out blurred? I'd expect closer objects to be lighter due to the camera's infra red, also if the camera has night vision, would warm bodies seem brighter due to giving off more heat/infra red. Happy to be corrected, I'm on here to learn rather than give advice, so anyone feel free to correct me.
