Cheap home/ SME DIY cctv security idea for computer/DVR/mobile CCTV IP camera equiptment
The company I work for sells cheap CCTV equipment for the home and small to medium size businesses in the UK. I sometimes get asked on cheap and simple ways to secure their IP CCTV camera / DVR surveillance system.
At the moment, the standard procedure is to just hook their CCTV equipment to the internet and the customer views and control their DVR/ camera remotely through their iphone/ ipad/ laptop etc... The only real protection they have is their computer firewall and a usename and password they set up once the CCTV system was installed. With all these programmes on TV, showing hackers easily being able to hack into company's security system, it leaves one wondering if having so many cameras in the house would be really beneficial? The worry is that these cameras can show burglars that no one is home. Is there a simple and cheap method to resolve this concern, and how easy would it be a hacker to control someone’s home/small office CCTV system.
All ideas are welcome.
