The ESP32-CAM device (which is under $10 quantity 1 from lots of sources, just google) is a WiFi enabled camera board with lots of functionaliy built in, including a full WiFi (2.4 GHz) and TCP/IP with TLS stack.
I have been playing with a couple, as have my friends. Various folks have 3D printed cases for particular uses, or you can just use any little box with a hole drilled for the camera.
Folks have used it effectively for security camera applications. The camera that is usually sold with it (a very teeny camera indeed, smaller than a black bean, which I almost lost when I opened the package with the board and camera, the first time).
Easily battery powered. You can find a lot of support from the hacker community.
It does a simple (imperfect) face recognition onboard as an option, and can do single frames or streams, and has a number of GPIO pins you can use to trigger it, if triggering by motion isn't what you want.
