All you need to disable the built in LED's then build a external one
I will detail my process.
Solder and Soldering iron
power adapter (any adapter you no longer use should work as long as it can do 5V to 12V)
IR LED lamp ( i used this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWAX:IT )
Step 1: remove the stock connector from the IR lamp
Step 2: Solder 2 wires to the solder point fro the stock connector
Step 3: find a way to connect 2 wires to any old power adapter you have laying around (I used a old broken external hard drive board, but I could have just as easily used a adapter for an old cellphone or any other device)
After you are done, simply tape the IR lamp to the window (for a single layer window, you can keep it around 1 inch away from the camera, if you have a 2+ layer window, then keep it at least 6 inches away from the camera.
The IR light will also have a wider angle since it wont be restricted by being recessed in the cylinder shape of the camera body.
