Now it is clear, thanks for the quick response 😁🐵

  1. Sure reverse SSH is not needed here, but since I might need it on another project, could you describe the process and code?

  2. How about going from pics to videos with time limits?

Let's describe the project in a different topic. This is off-topic here.

Going from pics to video may require a bit more effort. Since videos are pretty large files, you may want to consider streaming options and processing the stream at the cloud. Depending on your connection limitations you may also want to have the quality adjusted (read, reduced) which is a clear disadvantage compared to the crispy pics. I would not consider steaming as a feasible option for the raspberry pi at this time.
