High power IR LED source. Does it help at night?


Hi there,
I was considering putting together a high power IR light source for night vision for my Alfred HTC Desire 500 camera. Would you guys recommend that? Would that help night vision work better on my camera unit?
thank you!

Build your FREE home security system by downloading Alfred:


I would suggest that you research adding IR light sources​ to your camera on YouTube. There are many how to videos at your finger tips there.


Hi @30planner,

Thank you so much for reaching out!

Some light is indeed helpful. However, you might want to run some experiments. If the light is too bright when Alfred’s Low-Light Filter is on, the images might end up looking very washed-out.
