Hi,
I'd like to start learning IoT. My plan is making live streaming IP camera over internet and not wifi.
I plan on using raspberry pi zero with cmos camera module and gsm module together.
But I have struggled to get information because raspberry pi zero doesn't have slot to put camera module like pi 4 or pi3 and I think gpio gsm module like A6 won't work on any model of raspberry right now.

So I need advice what module and single board computer that I can use to implements my idea.
 
So, if RPi Zero does not work for you for various reasons, why you insist of using it for your project?

As for A6: It seems it can be used with hobby boards like Arduino, so it should be possible to use it with RPi as well.

This should give you enough information to port necessary libraries to RPi, if somebody did not port them already. Even then, you'll have lot of thinking and designing how and where to push the video feed from your device.

And finally - if this is your first RPi project, I'd suggest starting with something simpler, and definitely to start with RPi 3 / 4, not Zero.

Sorry for late reply,
I found that pi zero has CSI camera port, I was mistaken about it. I already ordered one and still makes some experiments with it.
And A6 gprs module, I found those module is using 0 &+5 Volt TTL. Maybe I will change A6 to SIM800L since it has same TTL voltage with raspberry pi and many people has already implemented it.
I didn't research more deeper that these module can be communicate by using GPIO and act just like usb modem, I thought these module only had simple command interface such as send/receive sms & do http request and the other command interface is handled by their firmware. I am mistaken about it too.
Thanks for your support.
