The crux of the problem is restarting...if the power goes off, I would
like the system to come back up and (re-)start recording. Easiest way to
do that is to make it a service, or run a root cron.
Starting both BE and FE after autologin is not something I have been
able to get working...but I will admit to not having tried too much.
