Need Advice: Portable Kit Camera / Recorder

Hi,
I have a tricky (for me) question:

I need to setup a portable kit of 5-8 videos cameras at home for 1-2 weeks (then an other home, etc...) to records moments / motions. The cameras should :

  • be installed in 1H max
    • so should be offline or wireless
  • have a small form factor
    • be indoor: in living room, over the cook shove or in the fridge !
  • be wide angle HD camera with sound
  • have a timestamp
  • encode in WebM (or H.264)
  • will record few seconds of motion
    • with a good motion detection (IR or Optical Flow or ...)
  • the kit should be 1000$ max

Mobius (offline)

The 80$ Mobius camera has a very strong/open community.

  • Very good quality video + sound
  • Works offline (so no security issues)
  • Can record 8.8H on a 32Go SD Card in 720P
  • BUT the motion detection trigger too many false positive and fill the SD Card in 3 days

FTP Camera / Synology

I tried 80$ Foscam HD camera with low cost Synology

  • Foscam has a too large form factor
  • Synology can "do more" than a NVR and is cheaper
    • can be a wifi Router / DHCP (no camera setup)
    • can run NodeJS to work on files
  • Why FTP ? Because 5 cameras streaming 24/7 to a NVR would kill the wifi network and require a strong expensive recorder for 1% of recording.
    • SFTP would be better

Cloud Camera and Others

  • Cloud camera are very interesting but
    • Security is a must have. I believe in Google (if I can choose Europeen server) not Chinese cloud
    • DropCam has very bad comments
    • Cloud camera use tooooo much bandwith. Homes do not have fiber !
    • The FLIR is Interesting but no legal info about their cloud, bandwith use, APi, etc...
  • I'm waiting for Blink Camera (PIR / wire free) but only 5.5H of battery life
    • I tried a chinese version (Q21): useless because of it's time to boot
  • Ubiquity seems interesting but more exensive and only RJ45 and proprietary ?

My best bet would be a kind of Mobius buffering on SDCard and uploading to an FTP ?

Thanks for you Advice !
