The Raspberry Pi IR-CUT Infrared-Sensitive Camera Module is a custom designed add-on for Raspberry Pi. Similar to the regular Pi camera, it attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of one of the two small sockets on the board upper surface. This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which was designed especially for extremely high data transfer rates.
This IR-CUT camera module includes an IR filter switch giving you the best possible picture clarity in both day and night! During the day you can toggle the mode to Normal Mode by setting a chosen GPIO pin High, this disables the IR filter removing colour distortion from the filter. During the night, simply toggle the GPIO pin Low and the IR filter is enabled, when light levels drop too low the IR LEDs are activated and you are in night vision mode!
Visit this document on how to toggle modes.
This Raspberry Pi Infrared-Sensitive camera uses the same OV5647 as the standard Raspberry Pi camera, and is therefore able to deliver a crystal clear 5MP resolution image, or 1080p HD video recording at 30fps! The board itself is tiny, at around 31mm x 32mm, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. In terms of still images, the camera is capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video.
Two external 1W high power 850nm infrared LED module with onboard photocell is included. The infrared LED module is capable of detecting ambient light intensity and adjust the threshold of infrared light accordingly. Wtih this camera moduel, you can convert Raspberry Pi into powerful night vision system.
Because of the high power required by the two infrared LED, a 5V 2A power adapter is recommended to power both the Pi and camera. Flaky behavior and crashes may result if low current power adpater is used.
The camera is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's preferred operating system.
