Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. The problem might be some other setting. How is the camera set up aside from the settings you have mentioned?I don't think either HD or VGA are crucial, speaking offhand. The other settings include what is crucial and necessary for the automatic night-time pictures to be taken.

We have the cameras set for only still photos not video. We have date/time: photo quality high: video length 10 seconds ; motion freeze "on" temperature at Fahrenheite: Wi-Fi SD card "n0": AC connected "no": Upgrade Firmware '"no"; Managed Memory "do not overwrite: erase all images "no" reset to factory defaults "No" we have changed back & forth between the HD & VGA to try and get the night photos working but nothing works

If set for still photos, why set video to 10 seconds?What other choices are there? for video length, that is.
