Too bad the review highlights dome cams.@john-ipvm John's IPVM has a very good review about the night color cameras, guys can make some reading on it if you are the members there.
Color Low Light Mega Camera Shootout - Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha, Hikvision, Panasonic, Speco, Sony, VivotekWe rank, from best to worst, who the top performers across 20+ total 'super' low light cameras.ipvm.com
Yea, that looks like it would work. Have the light set on, with a low limit. Mine will be pointed at the road, so probably would not be appropriate to have a white light blasting out onto the public street.
See this is a shot from one of my cameras. I have turn IR mode on, but limit it to a maximum of 5%. The camera can still choose to use the light or not, but only to a max power set by the user.

Oh... Butt girl. Yes. I have not seen her around recently. She is a thief who, get this, steals cigarette butts. She goes up and down the block for the past couple years and steals anything not locked down.Okay, I give up...what setting is "Butt Girl"?
The smoker took those things down to absolutely nothing, there was no tobacco left on them.... but she kept coming back for them. Someone mentioned she might be filtering drugs through them.She has an interest in DNA profiling.
And doesn't sleep at night.
This isn't ColorVu specific, but if you haven't already run across it, it might give you some ideas:I'm still trying to find the best settings to reduce noise on my ColorVu's. On the front camera it isn't as terrible but still definitely some there.
Damn, yet another roadblock.... Thanks for the heads up, I did wonder why I couldn't find any info on IR lighting...
