Raytec Criticizes Integrated IR

With integrated IR now offered by literally every IP camera manufacturers in offerings ranging from $100 consumer models to $1000+ long range options, it has certainly become a threat to external IR manufacturers.

However, we have seen very little marketing from Raytec about / against this.

And now this video from them:

It's a great visual with Raytec's caption: "Cameras using integrated infra-red generate more heat, causing insects, like spiders, to make their home right in front of them - meaning the cameras view is often completely obscured, causing false alarms and rendering footage unusable."

The main issue though is how common this problem occurs. It definitely does occur. It's no myth. But industry people continue to debate how common and what cameras designs and environmental conditions cause this.
