rayTEC VAR2 IP PoE i4 , VAR IP PoE i4. Lighting on, off, brightness are controlled by this overview camera and Milestone Xprotect.

Closest light has an 80*30 degree lens, and the far light has a 60*25 degree lens.
Choke point camera exposure time has changed from 1/25 to 1/100, and gain has gone from 75 to 50. Exposure time has had a dramatic effect on facial recognition, even on moving targets.
I will probably get a white light i8 to play with at some point in the future now that I know I can get Xprotect to accurately control it without lighting up the whole neighbourhood unnecessarily.
The lights were not cheap, but I was contacted by rayTEC to make sure I was getting the most out of the lights.
I also have a 35*10, and a 120*50 lens that I have tried out. With no lens you get 10*10 degrees. From my experiments I would say that they are not kidding with the distances they claim for the lights and lenses.

use-IP, and too much money to think about. ;)
The VARIO has 12 "LEDs", and the VARIO2 has 9.

It's not an apartment, and not a business. Just my house...mounted under the soffit.

A person would have to look up at your camera for you to get a face view.
It's an overview camera, to see what is going on, not a choke point camera. The choke point cameras are elsewhere.
