Picking Low Light Cameras For New Home Construction

We've been building a new home for the last two years and are getting toward the last few months.

I have a question in regards to IR, and cameras with "lightcatcher" or "lightgrabber" etc terms companies use.

For our front door with low light (two sconces), are we better off having a lower MP (e.g. Avigilon 1.3MP) with "Lightcatcher", or is it better to just buy a higher MP with IR built in, or something like the axis P3364 which is 1MP and has IR?

The camera would be facing north, and is covered, so there is no sunlight directly hitting it.

I am struggling because we have around ten cameras on the exterior and they all have different requirments and lighting situations.

The only conclusion I have made so far is our gate camera which I am thinking the Avigilon 3.0W-H3-BO-IR.

Thoughts?
