Is using IP as a security camera the best option?
I am looking to install a video camera to the front and back of my house for a bit of added security. I have a Linux server that runs 24/7, so my initial thought was to connect a couple of RPis (running motion) and record to the server. I was just wondering whether, in practice, this is the best route - does anyone have any firsthand experience, even?
There are lots of ready-made IP cameras on the market and I was just wondering whether these might be a better option (practically or cost-
wise). Is it even advisable to avoid using the server completely and just buy a separate kit with a DVR and cameras?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
