Tips to Troubleshoot Motorola Baby Monitor Night Vision Issues
Change the Night Vision Mode in the App
Normally, enabling auto mode on baby monitors allows the camera to activate night vision automatically when it’s dark. But for some reason, your Motorola Baby Monitor night vision may not activate night vision automatically when it’s in auto mode.
To confirm this, open the app on your phone and go to settings. Then navigate to night vision to see if it’s in “auto”. If so, that might be the reason for the night vision problem.
Change the night vision from “auto” to “on”. This should resolve the problem.
Note that you need to pair the camera with the app to change night vision mode. If you haven’t paired your Baby Monitor with the app, go to your app store and download the app (Hubble), then set it up and change the night vision mode.
If this checks out and your night vision mode doesn’t work, continue to the next step.
Reset the Night Vision
Another way to troubleshoot your Motorola Baby Monitor night vision issue is to rest the night vision.
Here’s how to do this:
- Take your camera into a dark room.
- Plug the camera into a working power outlet and turn off all lights in the room.
- Get a flashlight (you can use your phone flashlight).
- Shine the flashlight into the camera lens for about 45 seconds.
- Wait a few seconds. Then check the monitor to see if the issue is resolved.
If the problem persists, continue to the next step.
Make Sure the Room is Completely Dark
Your Motorola Baby Monitor night vision may not work if there’s any light or light reflections in the room (where the camera is).
Check that all lights are turned off. Night vision comes on when the camera senses that everywhere is dark.
Also, check that no light is filtering in through other rooms. Check the blinds and curtains to be sure no light is coming in through these places.
Check the Power Outlet
Your Motorola Baby Monitor needs sufficient power to activate night vision. Check that the power outlet (where the camera is plugged in) is in order.
You can try unplugging it from the current outlet and plug it into another outlet. Then test the night vision (in a dark room) to see if it works.
More so, if there was a power outage in your home recently, go to your circuit breaker box and turn it off and back on.
If the power issue checks out and the night vision is still not working, contact Motorola Customer Support for help.
For the most part, you can fix your Motorola Baby Monitor night vision by changing night vision mode from “auto” to “on” in the app.
If that doesn’t help, try other fixes, such as resetting the night vision and ensuring that the room is completely dark. Night vision only works when the room is dark.
You should also check that the device is receiving sufficient power supply. Then reset the camera and set it up again.
If none of the fixes work, contact Motorola Customer Support for help.
