Hi.
A retired old cellular phone, with camera and Wifi.
Can it be used to watch your home when you are away ? From what I read can be done, but do not understand it.
A permanently live internet connection is needed, with a wireless router at home. The 'surveillance' old phone properly mounted and permanently powered from its charger. That is as far as I can understand.
Can you help fill the blanks and details ?

Presumably you will also need good security software so that the bad guys can't hack into the system and monitor your comings and goings too.

Progress... Downloaded the application to a retired phone with no service by linking it to the net only via Wifi. Got image now.
