Unfortunately, the answer is yes and it applies to all surveillance cameras. If the criminals using infrared illuminator, powerful LED torch light or even a reflective board, the camera cannot catch the image during the nighttime.

Infra Red lasers can blind your camera for sure, but the criminals must have a perfect aim of the camera lens to do this. So using dome cameras with shaded/smoked glasses will make it very hard to target the lenses.

Can You Disable a Surveillance Camera with an Infrared Laser?

Unfortunately, the answer is yes and it applies to all surveillance cameras. If the criminals using infrared illuminator, powerful LED torch light or even a reflective board, the camera cannot catch the image during the nighttime.

How can you prevent this?

Infra Red lasers can blind your camera for sure, but the criminals must have a perfect aim of the camera lens to do this. So using dome cameras with shaded/smoked glasses will make it very hard to target the lenses.

Also keep it in mind, this lasers work best at total darkness while your cameras using IR lenses. You might close the IR and have the camera stay color and use some lighting to avoid this.

As you know, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Security is a complex issue and it has so many different components. For the best solutions all must be used together. You should use motion detectors , alarms, cameras and illuminators together to have the best security system at your property.
