Most cameras on sale now come with some kind of infrared lighting built in to provide recording for even the darkest of locations. Any infrared camera will record black and white video during the hours of darkness and at a somewhat lower resolution when compared to the camera's daytime recordings. It's possible, if you find the resolution at night is not good enough for your requirements, to put in specialist security lamps that generate a better light source for your CCTV cameras. These provide the most effective chance of recording colours under artificial light conditions, and can be set to only come on if your camera picks up movement.

Be thoughtful if using security lighting with cameras, so you don't annoy nearby neighbours or shine light directly on road traffic.
