Feeder/Camera Advice (1 Viewer)

Hi friends, I would like some advice on setting up a bird camera for my mother. I know nothing about this subject. I see there are options of: bird feeders with built in cameras, bird and hummingbird feeder with built in cameras and I see where some of you have the camera setup as a separate unit from the feeder. Whatever I buy it will have to be simple to operate as my mother is older. I think she would enjoy it best if she could access it by her phone. Again, I know nothing about this subject and I am only in the beginning stage of my learning journey and making myself familiar with the options. Thank you
If you have a front or back porch, I would get her a tripod and camera and show her how to focus on a particular spot and try getting a couple of pics to see if she has followed through OK. Then let her play and practice for a bit.
