Day / Night Box Camera & Infrared Camera Comparison
Day / Night Box Camera
The Day/Night camera with a low LUX rating has an acceptable image with a minimal amount of light but is not capable of producing a variable image in total darkness. This camera is best used when there is some form of light source (emergency lights, night light, street light).

Infrared LED Camera
The Infrared LEDs emit enough light to enable the camera to capture a very clear image of the entire room. In total darkness, an infrared camera is the only acceptable source for a viable image.
