I'd like to be able to set a schedule for the day/night (IR) mode on my cameras. 
As of today I can only choose between AUTO, DAY or NIGHT in the Tapo app. 
Under some conditions the cameras don't switch to NIGHT mode because there is a bright light somewhere in the frame. Although the picture is good in DAY

mode even in dim conditions, I've noticed that the image quality increases substantially when forced to NIGHT mode. 
 

Im running the latest updates for the app and the cameras.

+1 vote for this too, for the exact reason you state - especially on the D230S1 doorbell which will likely be installed near porch lamps or streetlamps.

It would be nice to program the camera to change from Daytime to Nightvision in the night and the after morning in dayttime again. Thanks

Same here, I have 3 TC 65 cameras that work flawlessly, apart from not switching to night mode and back, manually switching works fine, and one of them has no streetlights in the frame, that one switches absolutely fine on its own, but the other two I have to switch manually every night, really need to be able to switch modes based on location/time zone or be able to set sensitivity of switching

  +1, I just received my tapo magcam and auto mode doesn't switch to night mode at night, and looks bad, I had to turn night mode manually, it would be ideal to set an schedule for night mode so the camera sets to night or day night based on the current time
