Getting the hang of it

I'm really impressed with the Smart IR function on my PTZ's so why can't a company make an IR illuminator based on the PTZ principle but with no camera, just the movable POE powered IR "Smart" light that you can fine tune? The 12V IR illuminators seem so wimpy compared to the ones on my Dahua PTZ's. Imagine a PTZ light that could be remotely moved, output controlled and fine tuned so that you had the best IR light cast for the camera it was assisting. If the PTZ cams have that capability, too bad there's just not a light only with those attributes. Sometimes I can make so many trips up and down the ladder to aim my IR illuminator just right... to be able to do that remotely....I'll keep dreaming..
