Posted by Amy Hite on August 31, 2016

Night security cameras for both day and night use have evolved with new features since their initial introduction in the security camera market. These security cameras are now used throughout the commercial marketplace, especially outdoor surveillance, including live video monitoring.

Security Magazine examined day/night security cameras and reported their capabilities and shortcomings.

Night applications are the one the biggest selling points for night and day video cameras. These outdoor video surveillance cameras can usually be installed easily. They do not require you to purchase extra equipment. Some night security cameras come with an internal IR filter or an illumination ring that can save you money over time.

Remote locations offer unique challenges for night security cameras. A security system in a less populated area needs battery-operated outdoor surveillance cameras, with day/night packages for the camera and illumination. Video alarms are sent via a mobile network. Such remote outdoor surveillance cameras are also typically rugged.

Despite all the strides in day/night security cameras technology, it is still not perfect. Other environmental factors impact surveillance video beyond lighting. Two examples are background noise and vibration, which can be improved with low-light or thermal cameras.

Outdoor day and night security cameras have been used by the military and commercial property managers all over the world. A hotel in Hollywood, California wanted to upgrade its night-time video security system. They needed to have a great amount of coverage and high quality video. Part of their security update included the installation of day and night security cameras. In another example a school district in Westminster, Colorado updated their security system. Their updated combination cameras will have video analytics.

Outdoor night security cameras are typically installed at an elevated height to provide a wide field of view, which is critical for optimum zooming views. These day and night security cameras have motorized zoom, focus capabilities and infrared up to 150 feet.
