White Light LED SurveillanceBy: John Honovich, Published on Jun 10, 2009
Raytec has released an interesting demo of white light LEDs in use. The use of White light LEDs is still fairly new in security but it does address an important problem. Traditionally, outdoor camera setups were dependent on street lighting positioning. You were forced to put cameras near streetlights and to suffer the limitations of poor lighting (rarely would you add street lighting - it's too expensive and time consuming in most areas). White light LEDs offer a compact and fairly inexpensive way to ensure high quality lighting independent of street lights.
