Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Since a Night Vision device is sensitive to Infrared (IR) light, can it detect heat?

A: Night Vision devices operate as a light amplifier for light in the "near visible" light range. Generally, this is in the 750-850 nanometer range. It can not detect heat, which is at a much lower end of the light spectrum and requires thermal imaging technology.
