I use them mostly for security on my property and they work great. I keep most of the camera settings on photo with the three photo burst. Faces are very clear however, night vision is not so clear as day so I would place two of them a little closer to the item you want to protect.

I believe that it could work, as we have used one for a similar purpose. Chose a position location in such a way that the intended object or people in your case do not look directly at the camera. This camera does emit a soft red glow light at night. Use a cable lock to secure to mounting area.

Question

why is my camera only showing black pictures at night?

I remember the first time I turned the camera on, there was a 'night' mode. I left the camera in 'normal' mode if I remember correctly. After finding all my night photos were just black images, I went to try to change it to night mode, but cannot seem to find the setting in the menu. What am I missing here?

I have found that it will record the full programed length of time if there is something in view of the camera that is moving. so if you were to go and move around in front of you camera for 20 second it should record you the full amount of programed time. if you were to just pass in front of it, it should only record you as you pass then stop recording when nothing is detected to save battery life and memory space.

I noticed that to, so I set it up in the house in a controlled environment and this is what I found. The camera will record the full programed length of video if it detects movement for the entire time. If it stops detecting movement say five seconds into the video then it will stop recording and start recording again when there is movement again. I think that it is just a smart way for the camera to save battery live and memory space to only record when there is something to record.

answer 1
The PIR settings of the Cabela's Outfitter Series™ 8MP IR Trail Camera, Item: IK-461143, determine how sensitive the camera trigger is to motion. Setting this too high will result in photos being triggered erroneously. Setting the PIR to low will result in photo opportunities being missed. Higher temperatures can lead to the PIR being less sensitive. As a result, it might be necessary to set to a higher level when being used in higher temperatures.
