Product overview

• Spotlight an area with invisible infrared light
• Increase the efficiency of security or video cameras at night
• Easy and fun to solder with 41 parts
• Requires a 12-14V DC power supply

What can this kit do?
The perfect complement to your security or wildlife camera, this infrared spotlight kit (manufacturer code B223) produces infrared light to help capture more details at night. The board produces 36 LEDs worth of infrared light and can illuminate up to 5m. This kit contains 41 pieces and is great for those looking to get into electronics or those wanting to practice their soldering skills.

What can I learn from this IR spotlight kit?
Practice soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this spotlight kit. It uses LEDs and resistors to create a circuit. The circuit uses IR LEDs which work the same as conventional LEDs except that the light is not visible to the naked eye. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder, and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
This is a great kit for the security conscious or those interested in electronics. Putting this kit together is just the start – you may want to create an enclosure (not included) for the kit to protect the electronics, the light from the LEDs should pass through a transparent case. This kit requires a 12-14V DC power supply (not included).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't even light up my hand when placed close up to it! Built from kit (correctly) I can see the infrared led's just glowing so I know it's working and confirmed with the camera on my phone. It just doesn't light anything up

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for short range I breadboarded up the kit powered by a Duracell MN21 (38maH) battery to test with a Raspberry Pi NoIR camera and it lit up a small room ok. Wouldn't be any good for longer range applications though, but after 5 minutes the battery was almost dead so it could be down to that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very basic, but works well This kit, while very simple, does work very well and is capable of illuminating large areas at a reasonable distance for the power. The issue some other reviewers are seeing with poor illumination is an artefact of their cameras - B&W CCD cameras are far more sensitive to IR light than other types, and modern colour cameras usually have a filter that blocks IR light. With a CCD security camera this array can light up a small garden no problem, whereas my smartphone can't see a thing. Bare this in mind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great I agree with the other review - its not really a spotlight! Alo - despite testing the circuit only half the LEDS come onWill keep working on it - but it doesn't give out a lot of illumination for the number of LEDS onboard
