We're looking for a small (dome?) camera with night vision that we can mount on the base of the rear view mirror on the ceiling of our car, to record the thief or thieves who are regularly breaking into our vehicle, which we are obliged to park outside at night (as we don't have a garage).

Trying to figure out whether this idea is practical in the context of current technology and if so, how such a device would be powered and how exactly it could be used. In other words, where the video would be stored and accessed, what the charges would be for establishing the service and so on.

Any guidance would be most appreciated.

Why not an alarm that'll both sound a blast and notify you as well?

Yes, I'm also searching for a car alarm that will notify me by cell phone. If there is a system that would involve/include a camera inside the car, as originally described, that would be ideal. If such a system exists, I would be grateful to know what it's called and where to find it.

I'm not aware of any car alarms that include a camera, but there are loads of dashboard cameras the you could face inward.

Or you can install any wireless IP or CCTV camera and receive the image on your smartphone, computer or wireless monitor. They all use 12VDC.
