Under Camera -> Configuration -> Profile Management section:
I set the "Profile Management" to "Normal" and (according to the manual) this should allow the camera to use the Day or Night profile automatically. But it does not seem to be working. It's always using the "Normal" profile.
According to the manual:
"There are 3 options: Normal, Full Time, and Schedule. Normal means that the system can automatically alternate between night and day based on the profiles for each."
Why is there a "Normal" profile along with "Day" and "Night" profile?
It seems that Normal is the only profile being used and the documentation is wrong because it's not switching between Day and Night automatically.
If I set a "Schedule" then it will switch between Day and Night automatically. But setting a schedule will not be as accurate as allowing the camera to detect day and night automatically. For example, I may schedule it to go into the Night profile at 8pm, but it may not be dark yet, or perhaps it got dark at 7pm.
Can someone explain how this Profile Management setting should work, because it does not appear to be working as the manual explains. I have to configure different profiles for Day and Night to get the camera image to look good and I need it to switch between Day & Night automatically.
