Farm Security at Night Posted on March 23, 2016 by

The majority of us have watched an old John Wayne in black and white, and most of us would say that though it was clear it was not as descriptive as one of his films in color. The same is true for video camera footage. Everyone agrees that viewing video footage in color is far more telling than a black and white picture. Having color allows for a greater level of identification in video surveillance and a greater level of protection on your farm.

Conventional day/night cameras produce a color image during daylight hours but then automatically transition to a black and white image during the night. This colorless picture produces a high quality image; however, by nature, a black and white photo fails to deliver the important and intricate details that a color shot does.


Let’s assume that there is a conventional camera watching the fuel and chemical tanks on your farm at night. Let’s then suppose that John Doe pulled up in a pick-up, and proceeded to steal Anhydrous. A black and white photo will catch this event, but it will fail to give certain key identifiers such as color of truck, color of clothes, and potentially even a license plate number. What can you do to get the most detailed surveillance possible during night and evening hours on your farm?


Security Alarm has found that lightfinder technology is the solution for effectively viewing high risk areas at night. High Definition cameras with lightfinder pull what little light is present, and create a colored picture that looks almost exactly like real, day light video footage. Security Alarm would love to come out to your home or farm and discuss the possibility of installing cameras that produce colored, high detailed images 24hrs a day. Sleep better at night knowing that if an incident were to occur, the event would be captured with the greatest level of detail.
