As with many advantages, come the downsides too; the IP surveillance cameras are frequently becoming the target for hackers and intruders. Like any other internet-based application, the IP surveillance cameras are also vulnerable to hackers.
However, with the following security measure, one can avoid the unwarranted misuse of the IP security cameras.
Updating the IP Security Camera Firmware: Usually, if a manufacturer does spot vulnerability with their product, they issue a firmware update to avoid any security compromises.
CONT… Checking the IP security Camera website for any such updates or checking with your vendor on a constant basis can help you from being exploited by hackers.
Avoid connecting the IP security cameras to the internet: It is ideal to not connect the IP security cameras to the internet as you might end up with your private footages floating on the internet otherwise.
CONT…. Check your IP camera website or talk to your vendor on how to set up your cameras only in local mode, which basically will keep your security cameras on your company’s local network.
Keep your security camera password protected Thesecurity cameras are by default not password protected. Talk to your vendor after initial setup and installation on how to turn on this feature. Protect each security camera with a different password to avoid interference from hackers.
Turn on WPA2 Encryption for Wireless IP security cameras: Turn on WPA2 Encryption for all your wireless security camera setup to avoid any hackers from eavesdropping and accessing all your video footages.
