Use Nexus 4 as IP WiFi camera

Hi there, I am planning to not let my Nexus 4 sit in the dust and use it for something useful. I am aware that IP cam use can make the phone go very warm and deplete the battery, maybe making it even expand and thus I am looking at solutions regarding this.

  1. Can you suggest an IP cam app that is performace efficient, works with screen off?
  2. Is there any way to limit battery charging with root? I am thinking of AccA but the goal here is to not stress the battery and letting it charge contiously on 100%.

    If it's going to be a camera hooked up to the Internet, the easiest way to do it is with a Tuya electrical outlet with the power on/off setting adjusted to the battery's current draw. You can control the battery status in AlfredCamera, which serves as the camera's app and has a built-in screen saver.
