These devices provide an invisible infrared beam which can only be detected by your infrared sensitive security camera. This will enable them to capture footage in total darkness. Our high performance IR Illuminators are designed for indoor and outdoor use and offer vandal resistant features providing your surveillance cameras with illumination in all conditions.
An IR floodlight is an essential piece of CCTV equipment if you require a night vision surveillance image. Our range of LED lighting can provide CCTV images up to 150 metres or with a spread of 360° depending on the model.
Do's and Don'ts of IR LED Lighting
Don't forget that any matter with a high water content such as vegetation absorbs IR radiation and makes it difficult for the light to reach the desired target. Try not to point your infrared light through areas of heavy vegetation.
Do consider which IR's are best for your situation. Typical IR lights (Around 730nm wavelength) emit a red glow which is fine in normal situations, however for covert use you may wish for no red glow at all. In this case choose IR lights with a wavelength of 940nm which will be totally black and ideal for discrete night time surveillance.
Don't mount your lighting so that it points directly at your camera or facing the side of your subject. Mount the light near the camera to avoid any shadows and image bleaching.
Do think of IR light more of a torch light and not as a flood lamp. This means for a greater spread of light the beam travels will decrease, so decide which would be best for your application.

Honey bees can see UV light and snakes can see IR light. Humans can't see either.
