The night time images show up to 50 feet. Many cameras will claim a certain distance or number of feet. I have found that these claims are usually pretty much off. For example, a CCTV camera that claims to show you up to 120 feet may technically show up to 120 feet. However, after a certain distance, the image starts to rapidly deteriorate in quality. Lorex has taken a different approach. Instead of claiming a maximum distance, they actually give a realistic one. So there 50 feet claim is not only accurate, it may even understate their abilities. I LOVE a company that over delivers on their promises!
Even though I have not heard about Lorex before doing this particular research, it seems like a solid business to use. I would imagine that their customer support is also quite good. However, I have not had the opportunity to test this theory.
An anti-glare mode is also provided with this security camera. This allows for high performance, even under direct and bright sunlight. Ultimately, you can likely place this camera almost anywhere and expect it to perform well.

I actually installed one of these bad boys (I guess it could be a bad girl also, depending on your perspective) near my front door. I initially just wanted to get an overall impression of how it worked. My experience was generally pretty positive. The security camera shows good detail to a range of about 25 feet or so. It can see beyond that, although it loses so clarity. You would not really be able to see the details of a face beyond this range. However, how far out do you really need to see, if the main goal is just to pick up who is at the front door, or who is coming up to the house? Personally, I was very satisfied at this level of performance.

Also consider your level of technical expertise and mechanical ability. If you are someone who likes working with their hands and enjoys putting something together, then you may have more options than someone like me. Personally, I am not mechanically inclined so I never really intended to build or put together my makeshift system at all. On the other hand, you may be surprised to find out just how simple and easy to install some of these modern security cameras really are. I have put in at least 20 different types of security cameras all on my own. Some were a bit difficult, but most were surprisingly easy and simple. Usually the instructions were very clear. The times when it became difficult, I was able to jump online and check out some plans, instructions or even videos to guide me through the difficult parts. My point here is that you may actually surprise yourself with what you can do when you put your mind to it.
