Re: Internet enabled cameras in private areas of your house. What could possibly go wrong?

They were a combined device - a motion detector which took a stream of photos or short video bursts when tripped and when the system was armed. These were uploaded and controlled by the company's monitoring centre, without any transparency on how they were connected or hosted and they were not optional in the upgrade to the system, so they lost my business and I went with another supplier entirely, who didn't insist on such overkill.
