You might consider a second, less obvious camera with no illuminator, that just takes advantage the IR light from the first camera. In fact the first "camera" could also be just a shell with the IR LEDs but no camera.
Thanks for the ideas. The camera I have installed makes a nice deterrent as you can see in the video. Who knows whether he would have had a go at our car that night if the camera wasn't there. I have considered adding another camera up behind a big piece of lumber above the car looking back into the carport. I am in the process of setting up motion detection via arduinos and passive infrared to make the system more reliable. I get a lot of false alarms.
