Lifx plus bulb fail

Lifx plus bulb. Supposed to supplement infrared light for my arlo cameras…

without infrared on…

with infrared on…

Really that’s it? That’s all the extra IR light I get? big disappointment.

I’m returning this.

IR does not penetrate glass, so the light will have minimal effect on that kind of setup. Also, the IR really provides better illumination for parts of the video that are dark to start, like the end of a building or in a long hallway. This page has some photo examples of how to best utilize LIFX Plus. You cannot really add “brightness” to an IR video camera. But you can add some distance to viewing with LIFX Plus.

For the record, I did try the bulb in another location that same night. In that other location, I did not have it in an enclosure. I got the same results.

This bulb was sent back to Amazon on Monday evening.
