Fun With Un-Secured Security Cams!

January 3rd, 2005 | by Mike |

If you have a networked security camera and you leave it un-secured, is that an oxymoron or does that just make you a moron.

Well one of the guys @ Forever Geek posted a link he found of one of these security cams that was completely open to viewing on the net. Then a commenter on that article wrote up a nice but long, google search that finds all kinds of cams like the first one.

Nothing too special, but fun for a minute or two. If you catch a good network with a nice camera you can get some near, streaming clear video.

Enjoy.

UPDATE:
After some quality time viewing a few of these cams this morning, I have found my favorite: http://24.105.203.109:6010/view/view.shtml?videos=&id=9308

You can pan, zoom and everything with this cam! Fun stuff.

    I’ve not rtfa yet, but I’ve played with a few of the security cameras we have a work – they’re bunches of fun. A lot are powered-over-ethernet now, so there’s just one wire to run.

    Yeah, it should be nice for that amount of cash.

    The only thing thats too bad about that great camera feed is that there is really nothing good to look at. Someone really needs to set one of those cameras up at a Victoria Secret photo shoot or something a bit more interesting.
