What is Color Night Vision?

Color night vision is a camera feature using powerful light sensors to record full color in minimal light. With this improved feature, you get more detail and contrast in night time video recording for the extra security comfort.

Different Types of Night Vision

Black/White Night Vision

With no ambient light, cameras switch to infrared to compensate. Infrared lights illuminate dark scenes for clear black and white video capture.

Fulltime Color Night Vision

Cameras will continue to record in full color as long as there is enough ambient light. Very little light is needed for select cameras to capture color.

Starlight Color Night Vision

These light-sensitive cameras slow down shutter speed to capture more light in extremely low light situations in order to continue recording in color.

Installation Tips

These cameras perform best near external light sources outside houses or buildings. Color night vision turns off if there is no ambient light and/or the camera no longer is able to absorb the light. Cameras will switch to black/white infrared to ensure quality video recording.
