    They list as having 220 volts ac so not for USA perhaps. They seem quite large also. Check for other threads ir illumination. I bought POE ones which are good quality and work well.

    chrome couldn't translate the Chinese product page. I agree may not be IR at all.

    I've been using a DH-PFM511 for about 2 months now. Absolutely love it! So much I ordered a 2nd 511 and also a 510 that DHL will deliver tomorrow.

    Of Note -
    1) Great "feel" & quality full metal housings just like their cameras! As a design engineer I can REALLY appreciate the quality of Dahua products.

    2) both the 510 and 511 models support input voltages 90-240 VAC (@ either 8w or 15w respectively) so they work fine here in the states.

    3) works at night in IR b/w mode or full color mode at night if selected. I run my cams in color 24/7.

    4) No HOT SPOTS. these lights have a special duffising lens in front of the LED bulbs that evenly spread the beams. Also adjustable to the viewing angles of your cams.

    5) On/Off dusk to dawn sensors and only uses 8 (PFM511) or 15 watts (510)!

    6) adjustable bightness ability. These babies are super bright LED's. Just as good and maybe better light, and Range than my previous halogen 600w flood lamps.

    I wired a cord with a 3 prong plug on. Took down my old duel 300W HID flood lights and installed a duplex ac outlet up in my soffit. Next simply plug in the dahua LED. Mine are on a switch so I can turn them off if desired.
    Paid $33.00 ($47.31 for the 510).
    I order most of my stuff from Oscar @ JIMBU Security and have had EXCELLENT service and dhl shippments usually in less than a week from orders.

    So they included IR and non-IR LEDs in the same illuminator? I'm confused.

    Outdoor rated visible light illuminators of roughly this size and power are readily available at low prices, but they are designed to be mounted on offroad vehicles and whatnot so they don't have light sensors to automatically turn off during the day. (e.g. http://a.co/1iJHZKQ which are actually just 24 watts each)

    Not sure how they do it but only see the 6 LED bulbs so they get night IR lumens and bright white light. This allows the cam to work in either Black & White mode or Color mode. I guess it wouldn't really be infared as you don't get a dark area and red light covert effect, but for my backyard I really like the full white light security and running in color mode at such a small (8w) power draw.
    Here's some snapshots in several different settings.

    Looks to me like it's just a general area light.
    Specs: 5500K-6500K

    What's the effective range on the 510?
