Bug - Camera switches between night/day modes, even when the shutter is closed, causes clicking

At night, every time the light changes in the room (i.e tv lights the room up) the camera switches from night mode to day mode (the red light comes on/off) or vice-versa. This happens even when the shutter is closed so is redundant. It can be pretty annoying to hear it click each time.

Hi werwulf,

I did reply in the other thread where you discussed this with other users. Yes, the camera does switch between night and day modes automatically (just based on the light level of the room), and this does produce an audible click. It doesn't start a recording, but it is getting ready for if it ever needs to record. So this behavior is intentional.

@davey_d​ Hi there. Why does it need to do this when the shutter is closed though? Why can't it set the right mode at the moment the shutter opens?

The light sensor adjusts to night vision based on light levels, in real time. That way, during an actual trigger for a recording, the camera doesn't have to wait for the switch-over before starting.
