Can a HDCVI Camera Have a Scheduled Day/Night Mode?

I've been very impressed by a set of 8 HDCVI cameras I've installed. However there is one camera which I'd like to force in to night mode earlier than it is doing at the moment. The camera does not have WDR and in the evening, it looks across a dark room and a light room in a house. Only the light room can be seen clearly. I'd like to switch to night mode and rely upon IR so the dark room can be seen clearly as well as the light room.

Is there a way to force a HDCVI camera in to night mode, perhaps based upon a schedule? I know this can be done with IP cameras but maybe it's not an option with HDCVI. Maybe I've just overlooked where to tweak this setting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
