I have a questions as stated in title - I hope it will not be "primarily opinion based" since I wanted to ask you if what I have in mind is even doable.
I want to create network of couple cameras that could stream from given location to local server.
Few requirements for my project:
attaching another camera to network should be easy (REST API?)
cheap & relatively good quality, around 720p (Microcontroler like Arduino, Raspberry PI, surveilance cam?)
- should have one main router (Raspberry Pi?) that would stream the data to other devices
In the internet I saw simple examples where 1 cam = 1 Raspberry Pi but I don't know if it isn't overkill since that setup costs around 50 euro and you get OS for one job
