Thought Exercise: Remote Client Application

Hey everyone, I have a client that posed an interesting question so I thought I'd see what you great minds had for a solution. This client has 100+ remote locations nationally. Most of these locations have their own cameras and access control, but there is a need/want to place a single camera, maybe two on some sites outside of the on-site system for our use.

These locations would all have internet access and power, we don't need a ton of analytics (although it would be nice), and we want to keep install as simple as possible. Would an IP camera using a cloud-based NVR be the best solution? My understanding is that providers like Avigilon Blue and Eagle Eye still require an on-site appliance to then run to the cloud, correct? Would there be an option out there that wouldn't require and on-site device? Or am I living in a fantasy world of cheap, easy, and functional.
