night vision surveillance camera

Postby bl0ndynek » Mon Jul 20, 2015 3:56 pm

Hi everyone,

I want to use Raspberry Pi to build surveillance camera. The important feature for me is be night vision. I see that there is problem to get standard raspberry camera with good night vision. Can you recommend any camera on USB that have night vision and is supported by raspberry pi?

I also plan to use system what do you think about it?

It will be easier to find an IP camera that has night vision. Search amazon and you will find hundreds to choose from. You can monitor them with the motion package.

Noir camera and a good IR light source, you can buy IR led for very cheap, just keep attention to their light frequency: must be in the same range of the camera, but not of the visible light, obviously :)
