Recently I bought 4 IR Infrared Illuminators for my security cameras to compare and test in order to come up with one that I liked. I have a situation where the IR light my existing cameras does not have anything to bounce off of. This is due to them being 2 stories in the air and also there is space around my home. So I had bought another IR Floodlight for the security cameras that I wrote up here:http://www.tagnaples.com/improve-security-camera-night-vision-ir-illuminator-cctv/. The IR Illuminator floodlight really did the trick. Well, they stopped selling that particular brand so I had to come up with another one. I think I really like the Univivi IR Illuminator,850nm 12 LEDs Wide Angle IR Illuminator for Night Vision,Waterproof LED Infrared Light with 12V DC Power Adapter for IP Camera, CCTV Security Camera.
So the 4 IR Illuminator Floodlights I am comparing are :
- JC Infrared Illuminator 12-Led 90°Wide Angle High-Power IR Illuminator for 850nm IP Camera CCTV Analogue Security Surveillance Camera
- JC Infrared Illuminator 4 Led High Power LED IR Array Illuminator IR Lamp Wide Angle for Night Vision CCTV and IP Camera
- Univivi IR Illuminator 90 Degree Wide Angle 8-LEDs IR Infrared Light for Security Cameras.
- Univivi IR Illuminator,850nm 12 LEDs Wide Angle IR Illuminator for Night Vision,Waterproof LED Infrared Light with 12V DC Power Adapter for IP Camera, CCTV Security Camera
JC IR Illuminator 12 LED Security Camera floodlight will definitely light up the area. This is a larger floodlight that looks similar to the other IR Illuminator floodlights that I received and installed in the past. This light is billed as a 90 degree angled light, but seems to be limited on scope once it has the space.
With items to shine and bounce light off, this light will do the trick with larger areas. This light did come with a Power Supply.
The JC IR Illuminator 4 LED Security Camera floodlight is a bit smaller than the other floodlights, but still puts out some light. I think this IR floodlight would be ideal in a tighter area. Also would work where the light just needed to be smaller.
This particular one did not come with a power supply.
The Univivi 8 LED IR Illuminator Security Camera floodlight is a smaller version of the 12 LED models. This light still puts out some light for its size.
It is another candidate for when size of the light due to spacing requirements is warranted. This light still compared to the 12 LED lights. This light did come with a Power Supply.
This light looks like a replica of the other lights.
The Univivi 12 LED IR Illuminator Security Camera Floodlight is definitely my pick from this purchase. This light really lights up the area and even from a distance. When there is much space to cover this light is needed to see movement. I am looking mostly for animals, but if people come through, I can definitely see some features. This light did come with a Power Supply.
