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.
BNC to HDMI converter can be ordered with this camera. The converter allows you to connect your security camera to a TV via the HDMI input of your TV. In addition to the BNC video input on the converter, there is also a BNC loop output so that you can connect the camera to a security camera DVR in addition to a TV / monitor. The BNC loop output is optional to use.
This device can be used solely as a way to connect your security camera to a TV for a live view only or you can also use the BNC output to also connect the camera's video to a second device, such as a DVR for recording video surveillance footage. You can see this in the above installation diagram.
This camera works great with
Viewtron security camera DVRs. Viewtron 4K CCTV DVRs are hybrid. They support analog CCTV cameras, HD BNC cameras, and network IP cameras up to 4K resolution.
