These cameras do have night vision - they have built in IR Illuminators which project beams of near-infrared light, similar to the beam of a normal flashlight, but invisible to the naked eye, that reflect off objects and bounce back to the lens of the camera, allowing them to see in very dark areas where there is almost no ambient light to collect.

For outdoor night vision outdoor cameras should be utilized and mounted outdoors.
