What is a invisible IR camera?

Invisible IR cameras are typically being referred to when speaking about CCTV security cameras that use 940nm IR LEDs instead of the more traditional 850nm IR LEDs.

So, what do these numbers mean? The 940nm and 850nm reference refers to the frequency of light emitted (measured in nano-meters) by the LED lights of the camera. 940nm LEDs are invisible to the human eye. 850nm LEDs are almost invisible, except that a red glow can be seen at the location of the LED itself.

For night-time covert surveillance, this is not ideal because the red glow gives away the location of the camera. There are both indoor and outdoor camera models available on the market that use 940nm infrared.

Telephone via Satellite Broadband

You need satellite broadband  because you live too far from the exchange to receive broadband via the phone – well either you can get it but it is too slow or you just live too far away.

There are also the rare cases of people who have to pay too much to hook up to the phone network, so they choose Satellite Broadband

It is tempting to completely get rid of Orange when applying for a satellite broadband because you can stop paying your line rental and call charges but you do need to be aware of what Telephone via satellite broadband is.

Telephone via the internet (VOIP) is great – most Orange customers use it already  without knowing it (the telephone calls get priority due to QoS (Quality of Service) through the network).

Satellite calls are different

  1. QoS doesn’t exist beyond the router (so the voice call doesn’t get priority)
  2. The satellite is 36,000 km away so when you are talking to someone your words have to travel 72,000 km before they arrive – that takes 1/2 a second which makes a difference
  3. When lots of people are using the satellite it gets worse.

These people claim to provide good voip over Satellite Broadband http://www.vsat-systems.com/high-speed-satellite-internet/satellite-telephone.html
