You are better off finding a camera made for this purpose. I use a color baby monitor that has night vision and a wireless receiver with a 2.5" screen, purchased for about $60.
If you wanted to use a web cam, you would likely only get night vision, without day vision, by removing the internal UV filter and replacing it with some old school, exposed 35mm film.
