I would like to set up several android phones as cameras, but not running all the time. Rather, that I start recording on the phone or start motion capture (i.e. as I leave the house for a longer time) via a toggle in HA. How would you guys recommend that I do that?
I can either record only into the phone (easiest option) or somehow use the phone as a WiFi camera, or even record and upload afterwards.
I’ve tried surveillance camera apps in the past (years ago) but was mostly disappointed by the old phones heating up and crashing and being very slow in general.
