Infrared Night Vision For Raspberry Pi Camera Module – 3W LED


This is a 3W high-power 850 infrared light, adjustable resistance. Comes with an onboard adjustable resistor, for controlling the ambient light threshold of toggling the infrared LED. It allows adding night vision function to RPi cameras. You can use a small screwdriver to gently twist the variable resistor and adjust the ambient brightness to your preference. This infrared LED is a perfect addition for projects that require night vision.

The LED light board and the camera PCB bottom plate can be screwed together to use (no software control is required. The working mode of the light board is that when the light is dark, the LED light is automatically turned on, and when the light is strong, the LED light is automatically turned off. The adjustable resistance on the light board needs to be adjusted. Our default delivery is not adjusted. Because different user uses the infrared LED at different locations, it will automatically turn on when it is connected by default. If no adjustment is made, the LED light will always be turned on. Bear in mind that since it is always turned on, it heats up pretty easily. It is recommended to stick a heatsink at the back of the infrared LED, on the cooling area (gold plate).

How to use:

  • Connect the Infrared LED Board to the camera PCB with screws.
  • The screw holes are used for both attachment and power supply.
  • Adjust the adjustable resistor to set a proper ambient light threshold, which toggles the infrared LED automatically.
  • When ambient light is lower than the threshold value, the infrared LED is on, vice versa.

Note: The 3W high-power infrared LED might cause the Pi to increase heating, heatsinks are suggested. The ideal imaging distance is within 3 meters. When the distance goes up to 6 meters, the night vision camera can just capture blurry outlines.
