The following video demonstrates the color day time mode of the BIPRO-9004 as well as the night time surveillance mode in a zero light environment.
This camera uses built in smart IR technology which allows the camera to automatically adjust the intensity of the infrared illumination provided by the built in IR LEDs based on the distance objects are located from the camera. Click to learn more about smart IR.
What is LUX rating?
The amount of light is defined by LUX (lumens per square meter) one LUX is the
amount of light cast by one candle at one meters space.
Here are some examples of common light sources
expressed in LUX
Full sunshine 10,000 LUX
- Well- lit office 500 LUX
- Comfortable reading 300 LUX
Cloudy 100 LUX
Twilight 10 LUX
Dusk 1 LUX
Full moon .1 LUX
Quarter moon .01 LUX
Complete darkness 0 LUX
Some high quality Sony CCDs can have a good picture down to .1 LUX. Anything lower and they will require infra-red
LED's to see in the dark.
called night vision or IR (infrared) cameras.
Most camera specs will list the number of LED's (which people tend to
use to compare low light performance).
In actuality, the type of LED is more important than the quantity of LED's.Some LED's produce 10 times more light than
Still others are made so the
naked eye cannot see the light being emitted from them, making these better for
Comparing the amount of feet
the camera illuminates and how wide the light spreads is the best method to
compare IR cameras.
