Wireless Security Camera

http://live.pirillo.com/ – The Ponzi asks:

Is it safe to use these video cameras in your house? I've heard that burglars can pick up on the signal and end up using your video to rob you! So instead of making your house safer you are opening it up for others to spy on you! Eek!

Well, yes and no. If your security camera does not have any kind of security, such as encryption or frequency hopping, then you are opening yourself to a potential security nightmare.

If your camera is a networked camera, and it uses your wireless network for connectivity, then you need to make sure that your network is absolutely secure and locked down; otherwise your camera will be accessible to anyone that wanders by.

Most security cameras that are sold come with some form of rudimentary security. Make sure the camera you purchase comes is secure enough for your purposes.

Do you have any advice for the Ponzi?
