This thing has some pretty massive infrared illuminating power. Make sure if you are using infrared cameras with their own illuminators that you put this out toward the end of the camera's range so you can extend your total range even more and prevent over illumination and washout on objects up close.
As we used to say when we were younger, "This thing is a BEAST!"...lol. This is a nice, powerful infrared illuminator that has a great range. I use two of these on my property and I actually get a little more than 300 feet for a range. If you mount these about 3/4 of the length of your camera's LED range (if it has any) you can extend your range even further. The illuminator is easy to mount with just four screws and it uses regular security system 12 VDC power supply.
This illuminator works well. Casts a very strong and long infrared "light" that can't be seen at night. I have a very long driveway and I use this to illuminate it over its length to the street. I can clearly see people walking by my house at night and even cars passing by in the street.
Well not really but it seems like it. We use this illuminator for our indoor garage. I can't believe how it "lights up" the whole area at night. We only needed this one illuminator with our OD series dome camera to illuminate and capture in infrared, the majority of the entire room. Great product.
We actually have two of these illuminators to light up our store's parking lot. We probably wouldn't need any at all since there are some high-pole lights in the parking area, but with these it just makes the video image so much clearer and concise. I would recommend this, it is a good buy for the money.
Why would anyone need to see 300 feet at night? Because the sooner you can see someone coming, the better you can react. This illuminator is like a spot light for infrared sensors. It is easy to mount and I just plugged it into on of my system's power leads. The tricky part is aiming it, which is best done at night.
I own an automobile repair shop. Our business is good enough at times that I have to keep some cars overnight. I usually park the ones I can't lock-up in the shop outback behind the garage in a fenced in and locked area. Still we are in a large city and I need the proper security so I installed one of your systems with an infrared PTZ camera out back. Everything worked fine, but the range on the PTZ wasn't quite far enough at nite. So I put this outback of the shop and man, what a difference! This is like having one of those huge floodlights on my property but no one even knows it's there. If you're looking to extend your infrared cameras range, I highly recommend it.
