Hey, I was wondering, with the mass-produced powerful Android smartphones with 720p HD cameras of today, is it possible to use a smartphone locked to the ceiling as CCTV? It doesn't have to be connected to the Internet or to a cell tower. It's only job is to be connected to the power grid (constantly charging), so that it doesn't stop recording ever, thus gathering potential evidence in an event of a robbery/misconduct. If such a thing is feasible, is there an Android 6.0+ app that let's the phone record from the camera without sound non-stop in increments of 24 hours and save it to its microSD card for 1 year (or for 1 month if the microSD card gets filled up faster than that), with after each 365 days (or 30 days) the videos are being automatically deleted and the whole process restarts itself?
Are there any drawbacks to this? Is my thinking wrong? I would love to hear your opinions!
