This is a convenient feature that makes this camera compatible with almost any DVR. It also lets users upgrade to an HD DVR from analog and use the same camera. Installers can easily select the video mode using the OSD joystick.
The 36 infrared LEDs provides high quality black and white surveillance in the dark with IR illumination up to 25 meters (80 feet) in night mode. You can watch sample surveillance video footage here. This CCTV camera is weatherproof and can be used for indoor or outdoor home, government, and business security camera applications. The 3.6mm lens in pre-focused and provides a 90-degree field of view. This camera has a cable through body mounting bracket which means that the video and power cable of the camera is completely sealed and vandal resistant.

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
LUX rating examples :
- 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.
These are 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 number of LEDs. Some LED's produce 10 times more light than others. Still, others are made so the naked eye cannot see the light being emitted from them, making these better for covert use. Comparing the number of feet the camera illuminates and how wide the light spreads is the best method to compare IR cameras.
