Let say i want to use more cameras that Raspberry 3 can handle.

What (cheap) hardware you recommend for newbie?

Is it possible to run Raspbian in these other systems so i don’t need to learn new thing and can continue to use Raspbian and learn more about it?

Hi,

http://www.hardkernel.com/main/main.php this guys make powerful small boards. I have a U3 board and I was testing it with Debian and 4 cameras, it worked pretty well.

Hope it helps,

Thanks. What kind of resolution your cameras had and was these analog, digital or ip cameras and what was the framerate? Did you use motion detection?

Hi,

IP Cameras, different resolutions. 2-> 640x480, 1-> 320x240, 1-> 1280x720.

Using Modect at that time, then I switched to Mocord, because I installed an external hard drive. I have to tell that the CPU was pretty high loaded, so I decided to move to an mini-ITX board.
