Can I use the rear to record the inside?Updated a year ago

Rear-facing cameras lacks the true infrared night vision that is needed to provide quality in-cabin recording. If you park in a pitch black area like a closed garage with no lighting, the rear-facing dash cam will not be able to pick up anything. Rear-facing dash cams with Super Night Vision still require a minimal level of light in the environment, whether it’s lights from oncoming headlights or the dim streetlight. We all know how dark it can get inside a car when driving at night, and considering you usually won’t want to have your cabin lights on when driving, you need some sort of light to illuminate the car’s interior if you want to have decent footage Infrared LEDs can illuminate the car’s interior without bothering the driver - because infrared light can’t be seen with the naked eye.
