Does anyone else seen an issue where 5442 cameras get stuck in night mode even when it is pretty bright for them to go to color day mode.
I do suspect it is some firmware/setting issue since i do have 2 same model (IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E) cams mounted 1 foot apart with almost identical settings but different firmware versions , pointing to the same road but in different directions.
Yet 1 cam switches to color 1-2 hours before the other.
Another data point is IPC-HDW5442TM-AS-LED sitting in the room with pretty good amount of light coming from the window yet it is still blasting the LED lights. While IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E next to it switches to color mode no problem .

Any ideas?

Yes Condition is set to switch between day/night and as far as i can tell it is on day mode, yet the led lights are on. But the the illuminator setting is on auto for all modes (general, day and night.)
