Hopefully this is happening to other people out there!
Here's the situation; I know a guy who does CCTV systems, and he's been in a few mornings to install a 6 camera set-up. 3 cameras inside the store, and 3 for outside. The three outside are the IR night vision type.
When he installed the outside cameras he installed one in a secure dome, and it works...okay. The picture isnt all that great, the camera has a cage in front of it, and the LEDs bright light just shines on the cage creating a distracting bright grid pattern across the picture-maybe/probably the reason why everything I want to see is so dark??
The other two cameras have had secure cases installed over them, when the LEDs active at night I got a circular reflection of the LEDs, so then the next morning the CCTV took the window out of the security cases. Now they dont reflect back on themselves but they do have extremely halo'ed images and it seems a very dense fog has decended on the vacinity of my shop- rendering the cameras useless at night, when I need them most.
The CCTV guy isnt too clued up, i guess its just a hobby for him. I hope other people have found this problem and theres a common procedure to fix it. If you have any ideas I would reallly appreciate it!
