Yup, that's basically it. As long as there's no IR illuminator it's fine.

However... a lot of cheap "gen 1 and 2"(I've even seen some supposed 3's with this) come with an IR illuminator built in since that's not a problem in most places and it brightens things up.

Check there and read the law for yourself. PC 468. It's an incredibly stupid and dated law based on 1940's technology due to the "projected infrared light source" bit.
