What this product does
Lorex V261LCD-E is a security camera that is equipped with floodlights in addition to a very bright light around the camera which is turned ON when triggered by motion detection, or you can choose manual or scheduled options.
This floodlight camera is powered by AC adapter; there are few models of wire-free security camera that are powered by solar panel. See best solar power security camera.
In some color night vision security camera models, you will find one or two white LED spotlights to add illumination around the camera so that the camera gets enough light to record in color night vision. For example Annke br200 or Reolink Lumus that comes with two spotlight LEDs for color night vision recording.
Unlike spotlight security cameras, floodlight security cameras have one or two arrays of bright LEDs to provide illumination up to 2000lm or 3000lm which generally have color temperature around 3000K, as equivalent as bulb light for living rooms and family rooms.
Lorex V261LCD-E is equipped with two floodlights consisting of 24pcs white LED arrays to provide very bright light with color temperature up to 6500K, a white cool color as equivalent as cool daylight. You may compare it with Amcrest ASH26 floodlight camera and the new model of Ezviz Lc1c floodlight camera which come with two arrays of white LED floodlights providing warm color temperature of 3000K.
With very bright floodlight light, this camera allows you to record in color night vision when the floodlight is ON which you can choose between 3 modes, triggered ON by motion detection, manual and schedule.
