4MP Extreme Low Light IP POE Weatherproof Bullet Camera W/ Integrated Flood Light NSC-NITECOLOR-BT1
If you need to see color from your security camera 24 hours a day and you need some of the best low light performance the surveillance industry offers, then please take a look at this camera. Traditionally, almost all security cameras will switch to Black and White when the surrounding lighting drops to a low level or becomes non-existent. This helps cameras see better at night while also allowing the camera to see the invisible infrared lights that the camera may have.
While this is great for many scenarios, there may be times where you need to see color at night and this is where this camera fulfills this need. First of all the camera has a sensor in it that is designed to see in extreme low light conditions and still stay in color. We are talking star light conditions! However, if the light levels drop so low to where its nearly pitch dark, an integrated white flood light turns on to illuminate the surrounding area and allow the camera to continue to see in color.
Lets take a closer look at the features:
Extreme Low Light Sensor
The camera performs incredibly at the lowest light levels we have ever seen. Even without the integrated white light turned on, the camera is still able to see in settings with minimal amounts of ambient light such as star light or moonlight. There are times when you are looking at the cameras view on your monitor and it looks like late evening during dusk hours, but in reality, its midnight! You truly have to see it to believe it.
Integrated Adjustable Floodlight
This feature can be so useful in many different scenarios. This is not a traditional Infrared Light that you normally see on security cameras, this is a real White Flood Light.
First, you can choose to use the floodlight to come on/off as sort of a dusk to dawn light, so when the light levels drop so low the flood light turns on which also helps the camera to see in color a lot more crisply. You can adjust the light level sensitivity as to when the floodlight turns on/off. You may also choose to put the flood light on a timer as well and choose to have it turn on/off at a specific time of the day. You can also edit the intensity of the floodlights light output in the cameras interface.
Lastly, you can choose to completely disable the floodlight altogether if you wish.
