If you only want to capture video footage during the day, the lighting probably won’t be a problem. But most of us want a security camera to be an extra pair of eyes when ours aren’t available, like when we’re sleeping.
To capture clear images after sunset, you want a camera with night vision. Night vision capabilities vary, but the most important things to look for are the range that night vision works for and the image resolution.
For those who want to do more than catch the culprits in the act, a security camera equipped with a projector or projector is a good option. These cameras use motion sensors to activate both video recording and lights.
But lights can interfere with night vision abilities, so keep that in mind. If the video footage is more important to you than scaring off thugs, then you might want to avoid the lights.
