This is how I have mine set inside too with 3rd party smart plugs.
Ah, okay, but your first network, the one your camera lives on, is what I considered your local WiFi network. The fact that it has cellular Internet isn’t really relevant when going from camera to phone. Switching your phone to the second link - what I would accomplish by turning off WiFi - is what enabled the P2P hops across the two Internet links. So same thing in the end.
Nice set. I always wanted to set up a functioning old pay phone.
The Googoo: Yeah, don’t worry, we’ve got your back. And your front. Your upside. Downside. And middle.
Inside’s next so stay healthy. It’s a brave new world…
(How lovable are dumb phones - they do as they’re told! )
I’m more curious as to why I should be concerned about someone hacking into my cams just to watch me wash my dishes or change my clothes. I mean if they’ve really gone to all that trouble and are entertained…Im trying to figure out the downside. Maybe I’m just missing something obvious. Can they somehow get a magnifying glass and see my credit card statement somewhere in the background? Or is this purely for modesty/privacy issues?
The cable company also owns your TV remote mic and sets it to spy. Im constantly seeing ads on whatever topic I was recently having conversations about in person. Privately. In my home.
Its an insane and crazy aggressive market wanting to strip me of every single dime.
I think Off should mean Off not “Off”. If it means “Off” then the toggle label in the app should read “Off” - accompanied by a clarifying Info popup when tapped.
Same with the mic:
I do, but I usually have it off until we go out. Yeah, yeah, I know. It’s not really off unless unplugged physically. Technically, even if on a 3rd party smart plug, that could be hacked as well to turn the camera on. I think the odds of someone hacking into my feed are pretty remote. It’s not like I’m a celebrity or important person that’s a target and worth the trouble to hack. I mean to what, to see me sitting on the couch watching TV. If someone wants to spy on me personally that bad, they can bug my house. Not saying I would invite it or wouldn’t be bothered somewhat if I found out someone was hacking my camera, but it’s a pretty slim chance. Probably a greater chance of someone peeping in my window, even from the woods with binoculars… waves to anyone watching me right now
The way I see if they want to look at our boring cameras have it and have fun. Noting to hide here
Hey @raym64 , you’ve been around here a while, like me.
Do you find the discussion tedious/pointless at this point? Straight up.
Yes its a waist of time, it looks like someone has way 2 much free time
That’s a little rude, there, K, people are just motivated by different things.
would you allow that?
My FREE time is coming to an end soon, Got another government contract starting next year.
So my 6 month semi-retirement/vacation will be over soon so if you’re referring to me… LOL
Once I start this contract you all will see less of me posting here and on other techie forums…
I get bored easily and my hobby is also my profession.
I could retire whenever I like but not really ready for that when my work is like a hobby that pays me very well.
So coming next year I will be busy working and educating staff in Telecommunications technologies. And hanging out on techie forums less because you all don’t pay as well…LOL
40+ year Telecommunications / Electronics Engineer (and hobbyist )
Ever hear of socialism? Howzabout sprinkling some of that surplus booty on the poor little frogs of the world?
Don’t get him started.
Hey, he’s got too much time on his hands, I’m trying to help.
See which, badinage, raillery, bust chops, etc…
I have cameras in every room of the house, except the bedrooms and the bathroom, and I could give a if somebody hacks into them…
after a couple of minutes of seeing me naked, they’d probably want/need to gouge their eyes out…
so have at it.
Are you close friends (or close family) with anyone who feels quite differently than you about this?
Lol I here you same here…if someone wants to hack away.i say go for it
