    Illuminator Options

    The second generation of Active Deterrence cameras (VSIPP-5DG-ID2 & VSIPP-8DG-ID2) have three options for night-time illumination.

    • IR Mode - Infrared light with a black & white camera image.
    • Warm Light Mode - White LED spotlight to illuminate the area enough to use 24/7 colour. The brightness of the white LED will adjust based on the amount of ambient light in the area.
    • Smart Illumination - Combination of the two above options. The camera will remain in black & white infrared mode, until a target is detected via SMD or IVS rule. Then the camera will switch to 24/7 colour mode (White LED spotlight will turn on if there is not enough ambient light in the area) to capture the target in optimal video quality.

    The first generation of Active Deterrence cameras (VSIPP-2DG-ID / VSIPP-4DG-ID / VSIPP-8DG-ID / VSIPP-5DIRG-ID) only have the Warm Light Mode option. The White LED Spotlight can be disabled or scheduled for a specific time period.
