Light-sensing Infrared LED Board, Wide Field of View


  • 3W high-power 850 infrared LED
  • Onboard photoresistor, the ambient light detector
  • Onboard adjustable resistor, for controlling the ambient light threshold of toggling the infrared LED
  • Allows adding night vision function to cameras which feature embedded infrared filter :

How to Use

  1. Connect the Infrared LED Board to the camera PCB by screws
    • The screw holes are used for both attachment and power supply
  2. Adjust the adjustable resistor to set a proper ambient light threshold, which toggles the infrared LED automatically
    • When ambient light is lower than threshold value, the infrared LED is on, vice versa

Note :

  • Limited by the Raspberry Pi power supply, the 3W high-power infrared LED might cause the Pi to increase heating, heat sinks are suggested.
  • Ideal imaging distance is within 3m. When the distance goes up to 6m, the night vision camera can just capture blurry outlines.


  • Infrared LED Board × 2
  • Screws × 4
