I liked this DI10 IR illuminator
enough to purchase another one. However, having just received it I'm a little perplexed. First thing I notice when I open the box is a FOB remote control. Okay, maybe a new improvement over the original design. Next, I pull out the illuminator to see a little plastic box in the middle of the power cord. Not okay, it's CLEARLY not water proof whatever it is. I plug it in and guess what....no IR light even though it's dark where I'm testing it. Come to find out you have to use the clicker to turn it ON or OFF. The little box contains a relay and a receiver. Click A to energize the relay to turn the thing ON. Click B to turn it OFF. Click it ON, unplug the power cord to simulate a power outage then plug it back in. Guess what, the relay is no longer energized and the only way to get the IR illumintor back ON after restoration of power is to manually click A. And to make this even more hilarious, the location of where the photo cell on the back of the illuminator is has an opaque rubber plug in it. In other words, there is no photo cell so the only way to turn this ON or OFF is to used the clicker. Yeah, I'm going to manually turn it ON every day and after every power outage. Uh....no! I was just going to remove the relay box to bypass but there is no photo cell. Did I say....I'm perplexed?
