To Catch a Predator, Home Edition

A friend of a friend has a suspicion her family is being spied on through a shared attic-type space, but currently feels powerless to do anything without proof.
Is there a camera a person could hook up in an attic that would take images without any kind of indicator light showing that it was on and without any additional lighting?

It would also have to be compact and relatively durable to heat exposure, as the attic is (not surprisingly) very hot this time of year. She'd rather the images be stored on an SD card or USB stick, as she worries wireless transmission might catch the predator's attention. 120 V power is available if needed.
I'm the closest thing to an all-purpose tech nerd they can find so far, but this is outside of my wheelhouse. Any ideas?
I've intentionally left out details so that I can ask this non-anonymously. I apologize for the vagueness, but it was the best assurance I could offer that the camera is to be used for creep-catching, not actual creeping.
