The need for cctv lighting l.jpg
The Need for CCTV Lighting

  • Most crime occurs during darkness

  • All cameras need light to see

  • Regular street lighting is not good enough

  • Provide evidence for judicial purposes

  • IP cameras need more light

  • Megapixel cameras need more light

  • Video analytics only works with good clean images


Types of illumination l.jpg
Types of Illumination

Incandescent Bulb

HID Bulb

Fluorescent Lamp

LED


Led or bulb l.jpg
LED or Bulb?

Incandescent Bulbs

  • Low cost

  • 10% efficient – 90% heat

  • Require regular replacement

    Halogen Bulb

  • Halogen 15% efficient – 85% heat

  • Require regular replacement

    Drawbacks

  • Expensive to operate

  • Expensive to maintain


Led or bulb8 l.jpg
LED or Bulb?

Fluorescent Lamps

  • 40% efficient – 60% heat

  • Lasts 10-20 times longer than normal bulb

    Drawbacks

  • Produces a “flicker”

  • Contains mercury


Led or bulb9 l.jpg
LED or Bulb?

HID Lamps

  • 60-80% efficient – 20-40% heat

  • Good color rendition except low pressure sodium

    Drawbacks

  • Slow start up


Led or bulb10 l.jpg
LED or Bulb?

LEDs

  • 80-90% efficient – 10-20% heat

  • Extremely low running costs

  • Extremely long life

  • Durable and insensitive to vibration

  • Uniform illumination

    Drawbacks

  • Higher initial investment




Operating costs13 l.jpg
Operating Costs

  • Potential saving on 1 illuminator of $731 per year

  • Over ten years this is a potential saving of $7,310

  • Potential saving on 20 illuminators of $14,620 per year

  • Over ten years this is a potential saving of $146,200

LED based illuminators also provide increased site security as lighting is less likely to be “down”


What is invisible illumination l.jpg
What is Invisible Illumination?

  • Active or near Infrared illumination

  • Energy invisible to the human eye

  • Visible to b/w cameras

  • Light is measured in Nanometers (nm)

  • Infrared light is 700nm - 1000nm

  • Ideal source of illumination for security cameras:-

    • Ideal as a covert form of illumination

    • No light pollution

    • Longer range than visible light

    • “Don’t illuminate those assets you are trying to protect”

Visible or Invisible Lighting?

715-730nmVisible red glow

815-850nmFaint red glow

940-950nmInvisible

Lower wavelength (<850nm)

  • Longer distances but more visible

    Higher wavelengths (>940nm)

  • Shorter distances but invisible


Slide19 l.jpg

Visible or Invisible Lighting?

White Light Illuminators

White Light = Visible Light

Illuminate area for color CCTV cameras

Visible lighting for safety

Provide welcoming environment

Deter crime by illuminating the area

Multipurpose lighting - ‘all the above’

How to specify lighting for cctv l.jpg
How to Specify Lighting for CCTV

  • Angle of illumination should match camera/lens angle

  • Too narrow

    • camera will see bright spot in middle of scene

    • contrast between light & dark areas on scene will be too great

  • Too wide wastes energy & reduces distance

    • Table below shows the FOV angle for different lenses


How to specify lighting for cctv22 l.jpg
How to Specify Lighting for CCTV

  • SelectAngle of Illumination

  • Following angles are available

  • Select required Distance of Illumination

  • As angle increases distance decreases

  • Choose relevant Illuminator from Iluminar Distance Chart


Dual mounting bracket l.jpg
Dual Mounting Bracket

  • Can be used for Infrared or White Light Illuminators

  • Allows for Adjustable Illumination

  • Doubles the Angle of Illumination (max. 240 degrees)

  • Increases Illumination distance by up to 40%

  • Mix-and-match illuminators (angle & distance)

  • Mix-and-match Infrared & White Light illuminators


Lighting for dome cameras l.jpg
Lighting for Dome Cameras

Problem:

“Providing lighting for PTZ dome cameras is a challenge for CCTV professionals as lighting cannot be fitted to move with the camera.”

Solutions:

  • Wide Angle Illumination

  • Target Area Illumination

  • Local Area Illumination


Slide25 l.jpg

Lighting for Dome Cameras

Wide Angle illumination

  • Wide angle illuminators covering 120° allow the full 360° angle of a dome to be covered with only 3 illuminators

  • Use IL-DMB Dual Mounting Bracket


Slide26 l.jpg

Lighting for Dome Cameras

Local area illumination

  • Illuminator fitted away from camera to illuminate the local scene

    Target area illumination

  • Target specific points of interest such as gates or doorways


Lighting ptz systems l.jpg
Lighting & PTZ Systems

Problem:

  • At long distances the lens is often zoomed in giving a narrow FOV

  • At short distances camera pans to a wide angle

  • Requires lighting to cover both narrow & wide angles

    Solutions:

  • Provide lighting using twin lighting system mounted on PTZ camera (typically 1 wide & 1 narrow)

  • Same solutions as for Dome Cameras

  • Pelco Esprit with IR229-P Illuminators attached
