I have two of these cams up and get a hazy look with both of them at night when the IR is in use.  I’ve attempted some adjustments but the haze never goes away.  In fact its almost as if its something with the lens since moving the camera doesn’t effect the “haze spots”.  I don’t know what else to call them but they stay stationary when moving the camera around.  Here are a couple snapshots.

Hi, 

 

I see some white spots. this can be caused by water spots. Have you tried to clean the front glass of the camera with a microfiber cloth? Also What power supply you are using and how many  cameras you have connected in the same power supply.

 

Thanks

There are several possible reasons for the Ir reflection. Most often it is the reason that Jesus mentioned which is a dirty dome. Make very sure you only wipe it with a microfiber cloth. If the dome is scratched it will cause IR reflection as well. Another possible cause is if the round seal between the lens and the dome is not correctly set to isolate the lens from the IR LEDs. Also, if you try to point the lens at to much of an angle some of the IR LEDs will be positioned behind the metal housing which is cause the IR light to bounce off the housing itself.

Thanks for the info on this.  As an update, the lens was not dirty but I removed dome and made sure the foam seal around the lens was making good contact on the glass dome.  This seemed to help a lot.
