Infra-red (IR) Lamps
Human eye cannot see infra-red light but most Day Night CCTV cameras will. Infra-red lamps are used to illuminate a scene, this allows night time surveillance without the need for additional artificial lighting. Infra-red lamps cannot work with colour cameras. Normal artificial light e.g. sodium light, causes problems to the quality of the picture, not producing accurate colour quality.
Infrared Light Technology
Infrared light is a type of light unseen by the human eye, as it has a wavelength longer than that of visible light. It is a form of electromagnetic radiation able to identify thermal energy in objects near room temperature, thus making objects unseen in the dark become visible.
Infrared lamps make use of this pioneering technology, and are electric devices used often for communication, heating and security purposes. Most Day Night CCTV cameras are able to view and record scenes illuminated by infrared light, which makes infrared illuminators a constructive product well worth incorporating into your security system.
Infra-red Lamps for Security
Using infrared light affords the viewer access to a high quality resolution of CCTV during darkness. An infrared illuminator therefore won't cause any light pollution and disturb any neighbours or people in the surrounding environment it operates in.
Infrared lamps are a covert means of monitoring potential criminal activity in the darkness. The wavelength of infrared light means that nothing but a faint glow emitting from an infrared illuminator is visible with the naked eye, but the correct combination of infra-red lamps with a competent CCTV system enables the business or family operating the system to view infra-red images bright and clear.
