It's going to be cheaper just to buy a security camera with night vision. Most night vision cameras have a bunch of infrared LEDs to help the camera see in the dark. I don't know how you are going to get that added to an USB webcam.

As per the above poster...
While the C910 does have amazing video quality, it is a web cam. This would mean having a computer on in recording mode the entire time you want to use it. I can only imagine the size of the video file and how much space the raw video would take up.
On the other hand.
The Alert product line would be better suited for the purpose. The outdoor camera has a built-in night vision lense & LEDs for night-time use. The camera ony records videos when there is motion detected, it keeps compressed clips which are then transfered to the command software. The PC doesn't need to be on for the camera to work, all it needs is power and a network connection, you can even remotely view your cameras online if you set it up properly.
Hope this help.

As this would not require any alteration to the logitech hardware I took the liberty of testing this for you, on the C-series cameras C910 and C920 there is no IR filter like what the Alert camera system has. Therefore the C910/20 can pickup and detect IR light, I myself was only able to test using low frequency IR LED's but was still able to detect the IR light both directly into the lens and when deflected off of a surface. With the implementation of a more substantial IR illumination you may be able to illuminate a room, camera recording quality and reliability would not be supported with this method as it is outside of its intended design but it surely seems like its worth testing.
