I’m confused a bit on this. Won’t the LED lights just show whoever you are looking for where you are?July 4, 2016 at 1:14 pm #49368
LOL , thats what I was thinking .July 4, 2016 at 2:28 pm #49369

They’re described as “high-intensity infrared LEDs,” so they probably won’t be visible to unaided vision, but if whoever you are looking for has IR lenses, or other night vision capability, then yes.

I have an inexpensive night vision scope that works in a passive mode that would spot those things a mile off.July 4, 2016 at 10:07 pm #49372
Such IR LEDs have been suggested as a way to defeat facial recognition cameras and license plate readers, because most such devices are not IR shielded, so the IR light “blinds” them in the same way a bright flashlight temporarily blinds the human eye, without appearing to the naked eye to emit light at all. They may be attached to a hat or cap, or placed to surround a license plate. DIY Instructions may be found online.

What this appears to be doing is just filtering the IR light using the red and blue filters. You can buy IR filters from a camera supply store and recreated the same effect. This device will NOT see thermal (heat) images, it will just light up the area with light not visible to the human eye. Just a side note, ANY camera that can “see” in B/W will “see” in the Infrared spectrum. If you buy or build your own system just make sure that they are “day/night” cameras. During the “day” when light levels are high the camera will produce color video, at “night” the light levels drop below a certain level and the camera automatically produces a B/W video. As a second note, you may or may not need IR leds on your camera, there is a LOT of IR light out there – prior to SHTF. On a third note, if you are using a camera system that utilizes IR lighting post SHTF, ANYONE with night vision goggles will see your place like it is light up for Christmas.
