Our searchlights come with a variety of features that allow you to adapt our products to reflect your style and functional needs.

SmartVIEW Digital Control

A microprocessor-based digital control system provides remote computer-control and integration with other systems, using common protocols and electrical interfaces, i.e. ONVIF, PELCO-D, NMEA0183, TCP/IP, C&F Protocol, etc, and offered on all searchlights.

Night Vision / IR Searchlights

Available as an upgrade to most C&F searchlights, the NightFINDER thermal camera enhances standard searchlights with night vision and infrared capabilities.

Command & Control Searchlights

Our command and control network allows you not only to operate your searchlights from a remote location, but it allows you to command where the searchlight is directed.

LED HYBRID Searchlights

Make the most out of your searchlight by combining the long-distance capabilities of xenon and halogen lights with the ability of LED lights to illuminate wide areas at close range.
