Title: IR Cameras?
Post by: boarderdude730 on December 28, 2008, 05:55:11 PM
Is there any reason for me to not purchase IR cameras? At night would you actually see the LED's?

IR cameras are best for the places where there is no light, as we know that they are used to detect movement even in dark areas. So if you are going to place a camera in a dark place then IR cameras are the better option.

Oh! forgot to answer your second question, yes in many cameras you can see LED,s at night time also. That's why i think there is no reason to not purchase IR Cameras.

If you are thinking about using IR cameras for security, well, it could be the best choice though there are still downside of getting an IR camera. Of couse, LED's can be seen in dark areas especially at night.

I would only Recommend Ir Cameras, you can go without IR but there really isnt much of a gain from that at all, more of a loss

Other options is puting a seperate IR unit away from the camera, or using large amounts of external light source to light the area up
