I Have No Idea What This Is

There is a random black dome in my overhead lights between the front and back seat that looks like a surveillance camera. When I pulled my overhead lights out, I saw a large motherboard with a small array of what look like IR sensors that fit inside the black dome. Does anyone know what this is and what its purpose is?

Thanks! I can finally rest easy now I know that it isn't an FBI spy camera.

I kinda figured it had to do with keyless. I should get a keyless entry remote now.

I had my original security system removed, will the keyless entry still be able to work?
