Lighting is one of the most important factors in surveillance. However, it is also one of the most challenging aspects because your environment is likely to experience a wide variety of lighting conditions, changing based on the time of day and the area that is being recorded. For example, a retail store may be bright during the day, but dark at night; a commercial entrance might experience both dark and light portions in the same scene; a restaurant may have low ambient lighting all the time; and a parking lot may be pitch black at night with bursts of light from vehicle headlights. In order to capture the best evidentiary detail in each of these conditions, it is absolutely critical to ensure that the surveillance camera selected is equipped with the right technology for the lighting conditions of the imaging area.
