I will be going away for roughly 3 months and I would like to install some indoor monitoring whilst I am away.
I would mainly prefer motion recording, mainly due to storage limitations and WIFI connectivity.
If I am correct, most of the camera's will email me few seconds of the video clip once motion is detected?
Will I be able to set the limit of the recording? e.g. 10 or 20 seconds etc?
I have a BT Smart Hub 6 router.
As I won't be able check the videos straight away, could I also store the recordings on the cloud? So I could check on it later.
I have a raspberry pi and portable external hard drives that I could use as a ftp server?
I researched into IP cameras and they could be what I need for a cheap price. I found Xiaomi Xiaofang but there seems to be some problems with it recently according to a HUKD thread.
I have a budget of roughly £30 for the IP camera and I am happy with ordering from China.
Recommendations will be highly recommended. Thanks in advance.
