Vario 2 Hybrid: 1 Product 2 Illuminators

Hybrid is a 2-in-1 solution which incorporates Infra-Red for covert surveillance, and White-Light which can be triggered on demand; either as a visual deterrent with a flashing output, or for additional on-scene information for colour cameras. Hybrid is a single body illuminator which provides a total lighting solution. Hybrid reduces the number of illuminators used on-site, saves running costs and provides a quicker, more dynamic security response.

Creating Smarter Systems with Network Lighting

Lighting has always been an essential component of high security video surveillance systems but has historically been treated as a stand-alone accessory. However, with the development of Network Lighting, it firmly places illumination at the very core of our security systems and unlocks more intelligence than ever before. It enables us to use lighting as an interactive and dynamic tool which can respond instantly to any situation at any time. IP Lighting can be fully automated to operate even if your site is unmanned. It can be triggered from any... Read More

But with IP based security systems on the rise, it’s Network Lighting which not only helps us to generate good night time images, but which works with the entire IP system to help us stay connected to our site at all times. Being IP addressable, Network Lighting is designed to deliver the right amount of lighting exactly when and where you need it. Whether controlling it via its web interface, your VMS/BMS, or other platform integration, you have the... Read More

Raytec IP Lighting Set Up 24/07/2017

How Network Lighting Makes Set-Up & Commissioning Easier

Installation, setup and commissioning are made significantly easier for security professionals through the use of IP addressable network lighting. Gone are the days when we had to adjust illuminator settings in situ, often up a ladder or lift. With network lighting, installers now have quick access to configure all lighting settings via an integrated web interface from any remote network location. Adjusting the illumination had often been a time consuming part of any security installation and often involved a 2 person trip to site at night to achieve the best... Read More

VARIO2 Goes on Wildlife Safari

Raytec illuminators have been installed in some of the most challenging and exciting global environments, everywhere from the Arctic circle to the jungles of Borneo.

In an application where outstanding illumination was crucial, Raytec’s VARIO2 covert Infra-Red illuminators enabled the high megapixel cameras to capture outstanding detail and live activity at night. The low voltage... Read More


Supercharge the Night-Time Performance of Your Bullet Camera

Bullet cameras offer a cost effective and compact solution for general surveillance applications and many also include integrated LEDs to deliver short range night-time images. But now with the latest developments in LED lighting, you can supercharge the performance of your bullet camera with even the smallest Raytec VARIO 2 illuminator and cover impressive distances at night. Despite their popularity, bullet cameras do have some significant disadvantages. Generally their night-time performance is limited to 15-20m. The in-built LEDs also don’t have the same heat management as dedicated external illuminators which... Read More

Identify in Low Light - Raytec Video 25/04/2017

Identifying in Low Light

The quality of your illumination is a critical factor in achieving good recognition and identification from your video surveillance system at night. Even low light cameras which can produce an acceptable overview of a scene in relatively low light conditions need dedicated surveillance lighting to identify a subject at night – especially when zooming in over long distances. LED surveillance lighting is the number 1 choice for empowering your maximum zoom function. It delivers targeted and powerful illumination exactly where it is needed so that your camera is able to...
