The term “Long Range Surveillance Cameras” can mean several things. Probably one of the most popular meanings is long range infrared (IR) capability, but it can also mean long range zoom optics or long range wireless transmission technology. In this article will take a look at each.
Long Range IR
Long range surveillance cameras use a wealth of technology these days to reach far and yet produce a crisp, detailed video image. Some cameras use a large array of super IR Light Emitting Diodes or IR LEDs to increase the range of the camera. If these are placed properly in series they can extend a camera’s night time range to 1,000 feet or more.
