Not using the built-in camera, is there any way to connect via hard-wire (not wifi)
Two or more cameras to a cell phone (via the regular USB charging port),
and have the phone Store the AV signals from BOTH cameras at the same time?
Maybe a custom cable or external device and an app is needed to make this happen?
Thanks, people.

Hello,

A "regular" usb port on a cell phone is only for charging.
Depending on the model a USB-C port might support USB-on-the-go for connecting devices.

Well, thanks for the replies, but... Davenn: I Agree!
Of course, that same cable connection can transfer data, From or To the cell phone.
What Would It Take for the phone to store AV signals from multiple cameras?
I'd prefer a Wired connection optimally, but maybe it can be done thru Wifi?
HOW can we make this happen?

Really, people?
With what is shown on the Maker.Pro homepage,
it seems that this might be the Perfect place to ask about this project.
Maybe use a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino?
(Truth; I've never before dealt with either of those items.)
Add a few RCA jacks to a Raspberry, and Bob's your uncle.
OK, maybe it's not that easy, but... CAN this be done?

OR, might you suggest a different forum where this could be posted?
