Great add on if you need it... – IR 48 LED InfraRed Illumination Light for Night Vision (DC 12V 500mA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Not a bad price for a self contained unit. Built in automatic controls work great. Adds a lot of IR light for camera's sensitive to this wavelength of light. Very heavy duty and feels well built. Not sure if it is very weatherproof though... I only used indoors. Looks like it would be easy to seal with silicone if you needed to.
Cons:
Ok, I have several cameras installed around the house. Some have built in IR and they work great. This works great with those cameras, but now with my camera I bought it for (a TrendNet IP camera). For some reason those cameras don't pick up the wavelength of these lights.
Other:
You will need a power supply to power this but it is a standard connection... easy to find and if you have some laying around the house you likely already have one like I did.
Bottomline:
Well built and very useful if you need it and you camera responds to this frequency of light.
