Noise from daylight

Post by Lifeisabug » Tue Jun 22, 2010 5:45 am

Hi,
I am playing around with my new TraclIR5 camera and I am having problems with noise from daylight.

The light source is a regular window which is closed. I am not sure if this is a normal behavior and if I can do anything to solve this problem. Mving the camera soit doesnt see the window isn't really an option in my room.

Cheers

That is going to be a normal behavior, as the camera is designed to pick up IR light, and there is a large amount of IR light (heat) associated with sunlight.

Can you pull some curtains in front of the window?

You can try increasing the light filtering option within the camera settings.
