Hey guys, Mike from CCTV Camera Pros here. I’m going to do some IR night vision testing with that domed 4K CCTV camera that you see behind me, mounted to the ceiling tile. This room is 13 feet wide by 21 feet deep, and I want to see how well the built-in infrared LEDs illuminate this room. So I’ll do a quick demo with the lights on so you can see the great color surveillance that it captures. And then I’m going to turn all the lights off, all the monitors off, there’ll be zero light in this room, and we’ll see how well the IR works on this camera. Let’s take a look. Here’s the video surveillance footage that I recorded with the lights on first, and this camera has a fixed 3.6 millimeter lens, which gives it about a 90 degree field of view, so perfect for that corner mount to cover this entire room.

I’m going to turn the flashlight on my phone so that when I turn off the lights, I’ll be able to see and walk safely to the back of the room. Okay, so the camera just engaged its IR night vision, and there’s no light in this room, just the flashlight angled towards my feet so I could see where I’m walking. And I’m going to turn that off and put my phone in my pocket in a minute, so there’ll be zero light in this room. So there’s a zero light IR night vision mode right there from that camera. And you could see it illuminates the entire room very evenly. My face is not whited out. It’s a nice balanced IR. Works perfect for this room, in my opinion. So when I turn the lights back on, the IR is disengaged and the camera turns back into daytime color mode.

Guys, I think you’ll agree that the IR night vision on this camera is excellent for a room this size. I want to mention a couple other things before we wrap up. So these cameras have four video modes. They can actually run in analog CCTV video mode if you have a legacy DVR and you want to use low definition for now. But most of the time when people buy these from us, they used one of the 4K modes, which it supports HD-TVI, AHD, and HD-CVI video modes for the 4K resolution. We sell a lot of these with our Viewtron hybrid 4K DVRs, but these also work with third party DVRs if you have an existing DVR in place that supports 4K over coax type cameras.
