If you follow our guidance after an install and keep your details safe then it is theoretically impossible for someone to hack your camera as we only install cameras from reputable companies that use Advanced Encryption Standard or AES.
For someone to access your camera they could do so with any of following information:
- Your Wi-Fi password
- Have access inside your network
- Have access to the email address which setup the camera
- Because you accessed your camera from a public Wi-Fi hotspot
So in short, if you keep these details safe and don’t connect to your property using public Wi-Fi then you have nothing to worry about.
As we setup your camera we will of course have access too but you can revoke our access after an install if you prefer.
Remember that the weakest point of any system is usually due to weak device and or Wi-Fi passwords so make sure your passwords are not a word, are over 10 characters, includes upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols and are not written down and easy to find. You should not use the same password twice and the best place to hide passwords is in an encrypted App such as LastPass or 1Password.
Don’t forget, we do not integrate your camera’s directly into the Nifty system, this is because they will clutter and dominate your app. So even if they get hacked, there is no direct connection to the Nifty brain®.
After every install, we will make sure your system is secure. After this it is your responsibility to keep it that way. If you have any specific concerns or questions please contact support.
