No Nighttime Images

All Browning Trail Cameras are triggered by a combination of two things. The first thing the camera must see, and most commonly known, is motion within the detection area. The second thing the camera must see, and less commonly known, is a variance in temperature. Once the camera has seen both of these then it will trigger. This process is the same regardless of it being daytime or nighttime. In theory, if a camera triggers during the day it should at night as well. Below we have provided a few things that can be checked as a means of troubleshooting.


- Ensure that you are using Browning Brand or Energizer branded batteries. These should be standard alkaline or lithium and have plenty of strength to them which is reflected by percentage on the cameras Home Screen.

- Ensure that you do in fact have activity at night in the cameras detection area. A link is provided below which gives a visual of the detection area and how it works based on motion and temperature.

- If possible perform a self-test by either walking in the cameras detection area at night for several minutes keeping in mind the detection example provided - OR - bring the camera into the home into a completely dark room such as a closet or bathroom so it can be "night" tested at your convenience. Then view the SD card to see if the camera took pictures
