TRENDnet CCTV Target of Hackers


TRENDnet CCTV warns that 7 models of their surveillance cameras can be hacked. It was found that one blogger bragged that he simply typed an IP address with 15 digits in his browser. Not only would this be disconcerting to the system owner, it is easy to see how potential thieves would love to get in on this action. Trendnet suggests that if you own an IP cam purchased April 2010 or later, that you patch your system with a firmware update.

D-Link Announces the DHA-390 Surveillance Cam with Powerline Networking


Looking for a home surveillance system that won't take a degree from Harvard to hook up? Well you might want to check out the Internet Surveillance Starter Kit (DHA-390) from D-Link which allows you to monitor your home from a remote web browser. According to ZDNet:

D-Link is shipping the first in the line of its D-Life products, a series that is designed to enable users to easily manage networking devices via its D-Life Web site. First up is a surveillance camera kit that allows remote viewing of live streaming video from a remote Web browser. Starting at $399.95, the Internet Surveillance Starter Kit (DHA-390) is pricier than most entry-level IP Web cams, but D-Link bundles two Powerline networking adapters with the camera.

What makes the DHA-390 easy to install? According to the article:

I've tested only Wi-Fi IP cams, however. The D-Life camera is a different animal. Using Powerline adapters, it plugs into existing power outlets in the home for connecting to the home network router and then out to the Internet. D-Link says consumers can access the camera via the D-Life Web site for remote viewing and management of their account (adding new users to the camera, for instance).

For a quality home surveillance setup, the DHA-390 starts at a decent price-point and might be worth checking out.
