How Do I Setup Video To Find Out Who Is Vandalizing School Buses After Hours?

Got a problem with school busses being vandalized on the inside when they are parked for the evening. The busses are already equipped with IR cameras. Anyone ever thought about how these cameras might be levereged for detection and recording after hours? Perhaps a simple motion detector added to the bus to apply power to the camera and start the recorder (so we dont run down the batteries over the weekend). Or park the busses close to a building with WiFi and simply feed the video through a wireless connection. Maybe even adding nodes in the parking lot or on the sides of building.

Your thoughts?
