An IR Illuminator allows a camera to see in total darkness, when there is insufficient light to see. This can be useful for security applications, especially covert needs, or maybe when keeping an eye on the night activities of the local wildlife.
Surprisingly, infrared technology has been around since the early 1800s, but it wasn’t popularized until the later 1900s due to its use in astronomy.
Cameras and infrared illuminators are a great duo for covert surveillance. However, it is always important that you should know few glossary therms about Infrared Illumitaros before you purchase and deploy.
