Do you think your security cameras are doing their job? Have you ever been outside on a dark night with your camera seeing nothing but the glow from your infrared lights? If so, you're not alone. Many people have difficulty finding the balance between seeing their cameras and seeing everything else in the dark. This problem is especially common when there's low light or darkness inside a building or even a parking lot.
As technology continues to improve, especially in the area of computer vision, the quality of infrared lights for night vision will likely improve as well. There are already products on the market that will help you see better at night with your cameras, including a device that projects an image of a human eye onto the screen. In fact, these types of images look very much like what a human eye would see. If you're having trouble seeing your camera during the day with normal cameras, this new product should prove useful.
But what if you don't have a problem with clear vision at night? What if you want to see through some of those windows but can't really see anything due to small holes in the glass, peaking glass, frosted glass, broken glass, etc? Well, there's another option available. It has to do with using invisible infrared guides. These infrared guides are used to help you view your cameras and other security cameras from a different perspective.
An indoor camera with Infrared Lights For Night Vision will allow you to see through the peeling panes of glass, frosted panes, broken panes, misted lens, etc. You'll also be able to see the reflection of the subject of the shot. That's right. You'll be able to see the subject as it appears to the human eye. It's called infra red lighting and it lets you see through the glass that might otherwise be blocked by strong ambient light.
There are several advantages to using infrared lights for night vision with your home security system. First of all, it allows you to see the subject of the camera through the lens and not through the glass. This is a significant advantage over traditional camera security systems. However, just because it allows you to see through the lens doesn't mean that the camera itself won't be blocked by other things. That's why it's important to use an infrared guide. A guide will show you how to position the camera so that it can be viewed from any angle.
When you install the guide, there are also some other features that you'll want to select. One of those features is what is known as "hot spots". This is the area around the perimeter of the lens where the IR lights have been mounted. If you want to take a picture or film something in that area, you'll want to select video settings that don't cause the camera to get distracted by areas that are lit with infrared lights.
Another feature that you'll find is smart sensor. This is similar to the infrared lights that you see on the outside of shopping centers. It detects movement and activates the video or recording device based on certain criteria. The criteria include where the person is, if there is movement and if the camera is motion-activated.
Finally, one popular infrared lights for security is called the glass-reflector cameras. These cameras work well both indoors and outdoors. Most of these cameras are dome cameras. Some models are box cameras. What makes them popular is the fact that they have very little light leak - this means they work great for both indoor and outdoor use and they are inexpensive when compared to other types of cameras.
