Turn old smartphone into IA camera trap?


I know that there is several IA camera trap development ongoing from the poachercam to trailguard...ects...

I also know that it is possible to turn an old phone into a security camera or detector camera through several apps:





IA camera trap requires powerful CPU in order to run the IA software and connexion, all of these are present  in a smartphone.

Is it possible to run one of IA software on a smartphone in order to automatically detect a poacher and send an alert (with image)? Or detect elephant to prevent human wildlife conflicts?

And maybe for poor network area could be possible to connect a smartphone via Bluetooth to a satellite transmitters system.
