Why I'll never install cloud-based security cams...
Google Home Hub shows stills of other people's Xiaomi security cameras:
@fribbledom It'd be nice if companies/nation states had the decency to keep our data under wraps as they steal it instead of spewing it all over the place.
@fribbledom I like one of the comments on that link that basically says: They make you pay for it otherwise you'd be suspicious.
@fribbledom The whole cloud based IoT menace was put into a nice cartoon already 😂
Bottom line for me personally is to only use stuff that I can control via openhab and not allow it to talk to the outside world - our IP cams are in an isolated network and video feeds are bridged (not routed) on a Linux box. Same for our vacuum robot (also a Xiaomi, actually).
@fribbledom Should be /very/ interesting to see how on earth /that/ happened..
@fribbledom can you recommend some non-cloud IP cameras?
