Invisible IR On Home Cams: Good Idea?

Xiami pointed out that their new 2nd gen Yi home camera includes 940nm IR LEDs, which are invisible to the human eye, instead of 850nm, which emit the red glow we associate with infrared cameras.

Do you feel this is beneficial in cameras in the DIY/home market? Are there cases where the red glow has been an issue at home?

(Note that the model included in our test included 850, not 940nm.)
