I'm trying to set a few IP cameras for my students to observe the life cycle and behaviour of insects from their home. The idea behind this is so that they can access the live streaming anytime as the insects are kept in my house.
As this is not a school-funded project, I'm using my own pocket money and time to build this project for the children; hence, any advice to save me time and money would be greatly appreciated.
I'm getting Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 for this project.
Because some of the insects are really tiny, I would require high-resolution live streaming for the children to see clearly.
Here are some doubts to clear before I go ahead with the purchase:
1. Can I configure these two pieces of hardware to livestream at 2560x 1440 (QHD) and 3840x2160 (4K) @ 30 frames/s?
2. One of the setups would require monitoring a 800mm by 600mm tank. The camera will be secured 500mm above the tank to observe the insects (worms) inside. Given the area of coverage and height of the camera, would the Raspberry Pi camera do the job?
Thank you in advance!
