I paid $20 for a Sony SNC50??, only VGA, good zoom lens, NOT inconspicuous, NOT weather resistant. CAT 5 or their wireless card. As I remember, ( I wanted to have it watch the bird ( squirrel ) ( and chipmunk ) feeder ) it's easy to set it for capturing stills on motion detect, but I didn't get it to do triggered video. The dome cameras are weather resistant and less conspicuous.
A PI Zero and ( frickin - frackin 4 mile long link ) Arducam board from Amazom plus an adaptor ribbon cable 'cause the Zero's camera port is different. And Motion / Motioneyes... Gets a cheap motion detect / video record solution that may work.
Motion wouldn't do what I wanted so I can't say for sure should do multiple cameras, motion detection-recording.
( I got 6 cameras, 5 Zero's 1 Pi4 and 6 coral tanks, frame every 5 minutes ( Python script, cron job, rsync - rss ) stop motion growth movies. ( And the fastest snails you ever saw. ) )
They aren't wifi cameras, but I use the Ubiquiti G3 Flex cameras with poe injectors throughout my house/garages. The documentation says they require 48V poe, but I've verified they work with 24V also. My desktop PC is always on, so I threw yet another hard drive in it, used the free Ubiquiti software and have been fairly pleased with it. There's also a phone app that connects remotely to my desktop when I'm out and about to get to my camera streams and recordings, no subscription service required. I didn't have conduit between my house and nearest garage yet, so I used powerline adapters (TP-Link AV600) to get to the first garage and they work great just make sure you install them on the same leg of power and as close to your feed as possible for best results. I added receptacles right beside the breaker panels in the house and garage dedicated for the adapters and the signal is great. Between the lower and upper garage I have 2 big conduits with power, cat5e, and air hose, so wasn't an issue installing the camera up there.
Dear concerned Human being... If you want security then go wired and not WIFI... that is my opinion and... the truth. Where is any router or camera made now? Either it or I.T. is secure or it is not. No such thing as sort of pregnant exists?
If you did not make the router yourself or know it was made here in the United States of America or put your country here then you do not know if it is secure. An entire operating system can be slipped into a main board and only the best of thermal forensics and a pristine comparison non compromised board can work to detect the compromise. No computer is safe. Our entire security infrastructure here in America is built in places where they can be and are compromised regularly... so there is no safe and private WIFI! period end of story?

Today I was stunned to realise that, even in the local IT group here, I am in the minority of people (i.e. I am the only one) that put the Windows Taskbar on the left side, instead of leave it at its default position, i.e. the bottom of the screen!
I position it diagonally (Bottom Left to Top Right, obviously) using bricks under one side of the monitor.
It makes people less likely to use my computer.
Nah, it's at the bottom of my left-hand (Portrait) monitor. Left or right took up too much space with the original "Start" button.

4 icons wide strip on the right side since... well, since its possible to do so. I have the desktop and local computer as toolbars with small icons and no texts there too. gives instant access to everything.
About the mouse buttons... if he is left-handed, makes sense.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
