Vehicle log, need to know when doors opened overnight...?

Shot in the dark here,
Was wondering if it's at all possible to find out when a vehicle door was opened overnight. I assume since the vehicle "wakes up" when the door opens there must be some sort of log when the computer turns on.

This is the second time my car was cleaned out by thieves in the past 6 months. Fortunately nothing of real value taken. Certainly my fault for not locking the doors. I live in a small development off the path in the burbs 45 mins north of Philly. Cameras are up at the house but didn't get POE setup yet for the outdoor so nothing recorded. I may rock a f/r blackvue but not sure if that would have helped since they would have had to walk in front of the Jeep.

Anyway, any ideas welcome (other than locking my doors)

LOL, maybe if you are driving a Tesla.

Not in these vehicles.

Other than a wildlife camera or staking out your car, no.
Personally, I'd do a stake out. I enjoyed it. The kids parents were furious when they had to pick them up at the police station.

After the first time, I'd just start locking the door. It's very common for people to wander through developments and just go through unlocked cars with no alarms.

That's the easiest.

Yeah, they hit twice after and neither time they hit my house. I have cameras and some sensor lights up which they likely saw on recon. I keep it locked now and have a sensor trigger my phone.
