What Does Camera Lux Rating Mean?

We have lots of cameras which have a low LUX rating which means they can record even at very low light. This is a great advance in CCTV camera technology as it provides more opportunities to catch the footage you need. As a high percentage of crimes happen at night, particularly burglaries, being able to record in extremely dark conditions is a necessity.

LUX = Lumens Per Square Metre.

To provide a better idea of the light conditions of different LUX ratings here is a rough guide to help using natural lighting examples:

  • Daylight = 10,000 LUX
  • Cloudy = 100 LUX
  • Twilight = 10 LUX
  • Dusk = 1 LUX
  • Full Moon = 0.1 LUX
  • Quarter Moon = 0.01 LUX
  • Complete Dark = 0 LUX
