Awesome article.

They killed Barnaby Jack, but there are still loads of skilled people, more than willing to expose manufacturers gross negligence.

For one thing, never use these things' cloud service. Rather assume they have bad security and take measures to use them better. I make sure mine has no access out the firewall and its certainly not exposed. I use a vpn into the firewall and access the DVr via the app through that.

I noticed early on that these things communicate with external servers even when you turn the cloud service off. Nasty little things.

I agree. Known IP address is one way, VPN another one.
BTW, Is there any home router I can VPN in?
