What is a Night Vision camera?

The most common type that’s used on most security cameras is infrared (IR) night vision, which relies on infrared light. The thing is, infrared light is completely invisible to the naked eye. So it doesn’t look like a bright light is flooding the area from the outside, but it actually is—your eyes just can’t see it IR or night vision cameras use infrared light to illuminate images in the dark. Infrared light is actually all around us.

IR cameras detect these invisible infrared wavelengths, enabling the camera to see in the dark. Both rods and cones are sensitive to light. When it gets dark the cones lose their ability to respond to light. The rods continue to respond to available light, but since they cannot see colour, so to speak, everything appears to be various shades of black and white and grey.
