. There is a sensor on the camera that detects the light level of the room. When the light level goes below a certain level, the night vision mode is engaged, which turns the camera from color to black and white, engaged the IR cut filter, and turns the 24 built-in IR LEDs on. This camera has built-in
which adjusts the intensity of the infrared illumination based on objects moving closer and further from view. This camera can produce
in total darkness.
Another feature that helps with IR night vision is the SENS-UP function
built into the cameras on-screen display. Installers can access and navigate the OSD menu on this camera via 5 buttons located at the camera base when the dome cover is removed. The SENS-UP function that is accessed via the OSD intensifies the light in low light applications to create a brighter night shot. Most users will find that the factory default settings are fine for almost any application, but advanced users can tweak the settings of this camera using the on-screen display.

Recommended Surveillance Installations / Applications
CCTV Camera Pros recommends the DPRO-L36 for the following types of video surveillance installations and applications.
Indoor surveillance only, this is not a weatherproof dome
Installations which require high TVL video resolution
Variable lighting levels, such as bright light, low light or total darkness
Ceiling mount or wall mount application using the tri-axis mount
Great for residential, commercial, and government surveillance installations
Recommended to be mounted a total distance of between 5 and 22 feet away
from the area under surveillance. Refer to CCTV camera lens chart
The ceiling mount is for small to medium-sized rooms. Can cover entire rooms up to 22 x 22 feet when ceiling or wall mounted 8 foot or higher in a corner.
These 2 sample image snapshots were taken using the DPRO-L36 in the test lab in our Lantana, Florida office / warehouse. This room is 21 feet long by 13 feet wide. The camera is ceiling mounted 8 feet high in the corner of the room
This first image was taken with the office lights on to show the daytime surveillance capability of the camera.
The second picture was taken with all office lights and computer monitors turned off. This creates a true zero light environment to test the infrared night vision capability of the camera. As you can see from the image below, the DPRO-L36 has no problem illuminating this room, which is 21 x 13 feet.
NOTE: The video quality seen in this video is not as good as the actual surveillance video originally recorded by a high-quality DVR, like our Viewtron and iDVR models. The video conversion process to YouTube file format, unfortunately, causes some video quality degradation. Actual resolution and clarity of the original video are better.
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.
