Infrared Night Vision Cameras
About Night Vision Security Cameras...Infrared Night Vision CCTV Cameras are often described by range. For example 100ft IR Camera can see up to 100ft in total darkness. Usually more infrared LEDís camera is equipped with, farther it can see. There is also few different kinds of LEDís. Some are bigger and more powerful, other smaller and not as strong. New infrared cameras are often equipped with 2 or 3 kinds of LEDís. This way you can get good and not overexposed picture at short range and still be able to capture images far away from the camera. It is important to remember that longer range camera is not always better. If you need night vision CCTV Camera for small room (i.e. 10x10), do not use camera with 100 or 150 ft range. Infrared beam will simply reflect of the walls and objects causing to blind camera. In this case you should get 15ft-60ft range camera. It will work just perfect. Other important factor when deciding on buying Night Vision Camera is lens. If you need long range camera, to see objects 100 or 150ft away, make sure that camera has lens with adjustable focal length also called Vari-Focal Lens. Otherwise, even though infrared beam is strong enough to bounce of objects 150ft away, if you have wide angle lens, you still wonít be able to see much at that distance. You need a zoom lens to see objects far away. Remember that range is always based on farthest point where infrared beam can reach. If you want to see objects 100ft away, do not get 100ft range camera, get 150 ft range camera. Otherwise objects that are 100ft away will be barely visible. Usually, to see good with infrared camera at certain distance it is good to have camera rated 1.5 to 2x that distance. So if you want to see objects 50-60ft away, get 100ft range camera.
Many customers ask if they can put Night Vision Security Camera inside and have it look trough the window. You canít do it. Infrared beam will reflect of the glass blinding camera. Infrared Cameras always come in specially designed housings. If you need outdoor night vision, just buy one that is rated IP 65 and higher. You donít have to put it and you should not put it in additional housing of any kind. We offer dome or bullet night vision CCTV Cameras.
