Posted in the hope that some of fellow zoneminders might find it useful - I bought one of these IR floodlights and was quite astounded at how well it works:

I chose this one because it does not have a separate power brick. The bricks become a bit of an issue to secure and keep dry 30 feet up in a tree. This one draws ~2amps at 12V, which is really too much for POE. Some of the lesser floodlights might be able to be powered via POE, though. But this one illuminates the entire side of my house, some of which is well over 100 feet away. It also makes a bit of fog into a total whiteout, but hey, there's tradeoffs for nearly everything, right?
