Infrared Security Cameras

Secure Your Facility in All Lighting Conditions

Infrared technology is now standard on nearly all new cameras offered by Camera Security Now. Cameras using only visible light technology are blind at night, which is probably when you need cameras the most! Even with motion detection lighting, your cameras can miss important activity outside of illuminated areas or during the few seconds where the camera has not adjusted to the sudden change in light conditions.

How It Works

Most cameras work by detecting visible light, the light that humans can see. And just as you can't see well when the lights are out, neither can visible light cameras. Luckily for you, all of our new cameras come equipped with infrared lighting. The way it works is each camera has several infrared LED lights, these are just like regular LEDs, but shine infrared light that is not visible to the human eye. Our cameras can see the infrared light and convert the image detected into visible light so you can see it. The result is an image that looks like a light bulb or high powered flash light was turned on, but in gray-scale rather than color.

Stop Crime at Night

Have problems with vandals or thieves coming by in the middle of the night? The mere presence of cameras and signs notifying them that they are being recorded often is enough to scare them away. If not, our infrared technology will give you great pictures and videos of what they are doing on your property. And with remote access, also standard on all our new systems, you can be watching in real time to call the police and stop them once and for all.

Don't Forget About Safety

Low lighting conditions can often contribute to accidents or other safety incidents. If your old cameras lack infrared technology, or if it quit working years ago, you may have a hard time determining who you are watching and if they are following the proper safety protocol. Some low lighting conditions are necessary for certain operations, like movie theaters or some manufacturing processes, and in many cases, the low light areas are the most important areas to watch. Don't get left in the dark, add some cameras with infrared technology in all low lighting areas.

Frequently Asked Questions For Infrared Cameras

What enables certain cameras to see farther at night?

What enables certain cameras, in fact all cameras, to see at night are infrared lights that are lined around the lens of the camera. How far a camera can see at night is dependent on the number of infrared lights and the intesity of those lights. For example a larger camera such as a PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera can have many high-powered IR lights that enable it to see much farther at night opposed to an indoor camera that can only have a few IR lights equipped.

Do I have to manually enable night vision?

No, the night vision on your cameras will automatically turn on in low-light conditions. This is possible due to sensors on the camera that detect low-light conditions and turn on the infrared lights that enable your camera to see at night.

Is night vision footage low quality?

Due to the lack of light present night vision footage doesn't maintain the sharp details of regular footage. However, this doesn't mean that your footage will be of such a low quality that it won't be viewable, you just might not be able to see fine details due to the only light source being emitted from the camera. So you can still get quality footage from your night vision camera, just don't expect to see the finer details.
