The quality of a security camera can be seen how the camera performs at night, or how the camera performs in low light conditions. Each of the two Annke c800 and Swann security camera models respond differently.
Color Night Vision
Annke c800 with Sony Starvis image sensor provides starlight color night vision in low light condition or with the addition of ambient light around the camera. And with low light condition below 0.01lux the camera will switch to use EXIR LED for black and white night vision clearly, much better than standard IR LED night vision.
On the other hand, Swann Swnhd-887 comes with two spotlights that are triggered ON when it detects motion or heat that consequently provides color night vision. And you can also trigger the siren to warn the uninvited guest to leave your property via your mobile device, and you may also talk in two directions with someone near the camera. Annke c800 doesn’t come with audio and siren.
The bright spotlights and the siren act as active deterrent cameras like other cameras with siren and spotlights or floodlights. See also top rated victure floodlights camera or Lorex v261lcd floodlight cameras.
