That almost looks like not enough IR. Are you using HLC backlight? How far to the capture point from the camera?

Your going to have to zoom in closer, i am sitting at my computer as i type this waiting for a car to come by so i can dial it in. The first night it did it on its on, now it keeps trying to focus on the stop sign and i have to have a car going by slowly so i can focus it on the car. Once i get it dialed in it will stay that way all night and all day. I tried to use a preset once i got it dialed in and that didn't work tonight. So i'm working on it. Here are two shots from last night. Before and After i zoomed in.

I'm so jealous, I've only got 2 cams on the front of my house!
Well they have so many to choose from now. A camera for every budget. I still need more but i just get them one at a time and i will eventually have all i need. Ask Andy if he has any refurbished models of the popular cameras and that is another way to get expensive cameras at a fraction on the cost.

@gansle Try zooming in closer. Also i find it easier to get the zoom in perfect during the day and the camera will automatically adjust it at night. I have zoomed in closer since my last picture i posted. I have my preset set so that if i move the camera around all i have to do is hit my preset to get it back to my License plate reading position. This only works good during the day i have learned. If i move it at night i have to wait for a car to pass to get it back to a good location because it needs the license plate to have something to focus on. So i don't move it at night anymore.night LPR.jpgday LPR.jpg

What exposure is that? Seems bright, try increasing to the next value.
Once darker then:
+Contrast
+Gain or Iris

But you’re in the zone.
