Most CCTV cameras on offer now come complete with some sort of in-built infrared lighting to provide recording in even the darkest situations. Any infrared camera will record video in black and white during the hours of darkness and at a fractionally lower resolution when compared to the camera's daylight recordings. If there's a big resolution difference, it might also be possible to fit extra security lighting with specialist lamps that will generate a natural light. These lamps can provide "daylight" conditions for your system, as well as triggering bright lighting when any motion is identified by your equipment.

Be careful if you are using traditional security lighting with CCTV, so as not to irritate neighbours or shine directly onto a road.
