    I have installed hikvision turret cameras and am very happy. Only issue is at night the night vision seems to light up the white wall near it and the area I want covered is dark. Anything I can do?

    I had similar issues. best option was a PIR flood light. Even a low powered solar light makes a big difference, particularly since you need to be able to ID scallywags should you need to

    Is that the turret with only 2 LEDs on? The options are like above add some form of light or change out the camera. I found the dome with LEDs surrounding the camera lighted up a dark area much better than the turret.

    Be careful having cameras covering your neighbours property, particularly if you could view in his windows.

    model of camera may help as to what settings could be utilised. brining the camera off the wall a little may help as the IR is bouncing back. also you do need to privacy block out those windows.

    As above. I had similar problems and by bringing the dome out a bit using a bracket sorted.
