Struggling With Day And Night Scene (Uniview IPC562E-DUG)

Hi Guys, hope you are all fine!

I am having difficult time to figure it out.. I need to set two scenes in camera Uniview IPC562E-DUG. One for day and one for night (opening iris, slowing shutter etc to allow more light).

It is not good to set exact hour to switch between them because every night is different so the time it gets dark (moon phases, daylight saving time, etc). This camera has a feature to auto switch based on illumination. Sounds the solution, but I don't know how to use it.

Example: During day the illumination indicator is 50 ~65 (figure below).

So I set Night Scene to switch when illumination is between 0 ~40. So far so good. But when gets dark, illumination falls and Night Scene starts fine. But with its parameters (iris, etc), it start to allow more light in order to see the scene and the illumination indicador goes up (more than 40), so the Day Scene starts in a few seconds, illumination indicator drops, Night Scene enters, and so on.. I get in an infinite cycle.

Do you guys have any ideia how to better approach it?

I am very new in this area I am very happy to be part of this experienced groups. Thanks in advance!!
