All the cameras in this category have infrared leds in order to see in the dark. The LEDs (light emitting diodes) are 850nm. Our state-of-the-art, top-of-the -line IR security cameras are the best and latest on the market. These versatile cameras are completely weatherproof, and can be used indoors or outdoors, hard-wired or wireless. Browse through our extensive selection of security cameras and Infrared Illuminators and save today!
Most outdoor cameras are hard-wired. There is a wireless accessory option on most of the pages below to order an outdoor wireless transmitter when ordering an infrared LED camera. We include the wireless receiver and power supplies needed when ordering this option.
An infrared camera is able to see in the dark by providing its own light source. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) surround the camera lens and automatically turn on when the environment gets dark. These infrared LEDs emit light that the camera can see, but that the human eye cannot see.
Infrared cameras will provide a normal color picture during daytime or when the area is well lit. When the built-in sensor detects darkness, it will turn on the LEDs and provide infrared illumination. You will then see the picture in black and white. Clarity and distance will be dictated by the size of lens and the quality and quantity of infrared LEDs.
A 940nm LED will be virtually invisible to the human eye even in pitch-black darkness, whereas an 850nm LED will have a slightly reddish or pinkish glow in the dark. You would have to stare directly straight into an 850nm camera to see this very slight glow.
We offer 56 and a 104 LED 940nm cameras that are near invisible in total darkness. Many are sold to sleep clinics due to the fact that patients are not distracted by any glow. They are also used in warehouses, storerooms, nursing homes, and other places that require a higher level of stealth surveillance.
A 940nm LED emits less usable light than an 850nm led. This is why we must have so many LEDs in this type of camera. The nanometer rating (nm) and manufacturer of the LED will determine just how noticeable the LEDs will be in the dark and how much light will actually be produced.
We have infrared LED camera lenses ranging from 3.6mm which gives an extremely wide field of view, all the way up to 35mm which only has a 12.4-degree field of view (FOV).
Infrared, Day/night, IR Cameras: these are all the same terminology. We carry a wide selection of outdoor cameras. Many of these also come in a wireless version. Most offer an outdoor wireless version. It isn't hard to convert one of these cameras into a wireless. Select between 2.97mm to 50mm lens. The cameras will be color during daytime and will automatically switch to black and white at night.
