Day & Night Dome Camera
Day & Night security cameras are very neat cameras. They have special CCD chip-sets that allow the camera's pixels to take in more light and continue to see in color in low light conditions. Day and night security cameras cannot see in color in total darkness. You will need to leave lights on in the area where you mount your cameras. The light will help improve the overall video feed. Just know that you cannot use these dome security cameras in total darkness. Color video is just better than black and white video!
Leave The Light On For Day & Night Security Cameras
If you are a newbie to configuring the correct CCTV setup, then you will need to understand some key points before getting to far down the road. Everyone wants color in their closed circuit feed, but depending on your application you just may not have the ability to see in color 24 hours a day, unless the conditions are just right. If you are dead set on having day and night cameras where you can see in color in then you will need to make sure you have some sort of light available in the evening hours. The chances of lights going out will be the time where a break-in could occur. Everything seems to happen in security at the worst times. There is always an eminent threat for something to occur when you least to expect it. So when you are using dome day and night cameras, you want to make sure you have a backup way for these cameras to see. Keep the light on for your day/night dome cameras. They cannot see in total darkness and you will be sadly disappointed if you do not plan out properly. Most people think that it is just too much work, but if you leave even a night light that switches on during night hours, you can greatly improve the picture of your camera indoors. If you have them outside, then use flood lights or for business applications your external lights on the building will do fine. Most businesses, by law have to have external lights on the sides and rear part of the building. This becomes a great environment for low lux security cameras to give you the highest degree of video.
