Infrared cameras have IR lens positioned around outer edges.
When it comes to video surveillance security applications, it’s easy to see why night-vision-the ability to see in the dark-could be a significant bonus.
Infrared closed-circuit television cameras make this a reality, effectively monitoring the darkness for your surveillance system. Infrared security surveillance cameras have the capability to capture video in low light and no light (0 Lux) areas. Infrared cameras (IR) are sometimes referred to as IR cameras or “Night Vision Security Cameras” because of this. Infrared cameras have IR LEDs positioned around the outer edges of the camera lens which gives the camera its “Night Vision”. Infrared Cameras can capture acceptable video in total darkness and even better quality video in low light. Even a small amount of ambient light helps the overall night vision capability of IR cameras a lot. IR cameras are available in various body styles, such as dome and bullet styles. There are also specialty cameras such as license plate recognition (LPR cameras). License plate capture cameras are a specialized form of CCTV cameras that has built in software that helps to identify and capture license plates on still or moving vehicles. The intelligent traffic modes built into these cameras allows the camera to compensate for speed, weather, and headlight issues which all make it challenging to capture a usable video that identifies license plates.
