Multiple IR Illuminators For a Single Camera

Has anyone attending the class deployed a series of IR illuminators to improve the depth range of a single camera? I want to see people approaching down a long driveway towards a house, and want to get an early IR view of them approaching at night so my recognition software can pick them up and trigger an alert. Then another IR illuminator at or near the camera can be used for recognition, perhaps without having to be so bright as to wash out the facial details at close range. So, assuming I have the desire to run a wire down a fence line to the second illuminator, does anyone see a reason it won't work? I realize I have the cost of a second illuminator, but that's not prohibitive and if thermal is $2000+ with no recognition, this seems like a better bet.
