The Swann Multi-Purpose Day / Night Security Camera is sensitive to light and therefore, can make use of even the smallest amount of light to provide an image. In low light, this comes through as a black and white image.
In complete or near-total darkness, the camera uses built-in infrared LEDs to illuminate the area in front of it. This light is invisible to the human eye, although you might notice a faint red glow coming from the front of the camera, which is normal.
It has an OSD (On-Screen Display), that you can access to change various options for image quality, white balance, and shutter speed.
