You can probably do that much more easily, cheaply, reliably and neatly with a dedicated Wi-Fi camera. I bought one a year ago with pan, tilt, IR LEDs and 2-way audio for about £15 delivered. Just needed a USB PSU. That particular model, Digoo BB-M2 from is no longer available from them but have a search for similar.
