i have the same with the same problem.

One thing why it works only in the dark is because there light sensor telling if it is dark. The darker it is the more you get IR light. But even hiding it it doesn't emit ir light enough. I even used some reflective IR tape but it doesn't work. I finally chosed to make glove with IR leds
