Catching Cattle Rustlers. Need Covert IR Illuminators

I have a large rancher client who is losing hundreds of thousands in dollars in stolen livestock each year. My customer's cows are kept in vast pasturelands covering thousands of acres, and thieves randomly are hitting his herds, stealing 5 - 6 head at a time. He wants the rustling to stop now!

One of the problems with this situation: my client suspects some of his ranch hands may be the thieves, and equipment needs to be covert.

We've installed a slick covert camera setup on several pumphouses, each covering a main pasture gate. The picture looks great during the day, but the scene is too dark at night.

I need 'covert IR illuminators'. Something that has a range of 30' and covers at least a 20' field of view.

Do you have suggestions for me? I can provide more details as needed. Thanks IPVM.
