    The camera needs to see in IR before a IR lightsource will be useful.

    If the camera is rated for low light pictures or video it may have its own IR lights (usually LED). If your camera is in this group it maybe possile to increase the viewable range with additional IR lights.

    Several models of security video cameras use this set up. Also newer home video cameras are using a similar feature as a selling point.

    this shows a comercial IR LED light for use with cameras

    A less expensive one here

    Hope that helps

            any site offer the ultra bright IR LED's? I'd like to replace the ones on my current camera to increase the range.

              I've wondered about the type of cameras you have. How far can you see right now?

              Thanks

                Mastero, give this circuit a try.
                Use high-power wide-angle IR LEDs, if you can't get those in the schematic.

                Let us know how it goes.




                Also, follow this link for some theory:

                      My bad, Yes I know... I am doing a small project using UV. Sorry about the mix up... The statements still work but with IR.... I'll get the links to IR LED stuff.
