If you've got $20 burning a hole in your pocket and have always wanted an HD, night vision, motion detecting, time-lapse, continuous recording video camera with two-way audio that meets our minimum security standards, well, here you go! This little camera really does seem to have it all--as long as you have a microSD card for recording. Baby cam, pet cam, security cam, surveillance cam, game cam, cam cam--whatever cam you want. It works with Alexa and Google Assistant too. Going all Big Brother has never been cheaper.

What could happen if something went wrong

For a $20 connected security camera, these cameras seem to do privacy and security pretty well. If you're super into the technical details, you can dig into some of the more techy privacy discussions in the link below. With any connected camera, you should be a little wary someone, somewhere may be able to assess it at some time. However, the biggest concern with this camera really might be that you get carried away, buy a bunch of them because they are so affordable, and put yourself under 24/7 surveillance. You'd become your own Big Brother.

Tinycam Secure Connection?
Reddit Thread
I'm messing around with Tinycam and adding cameras and when I look at the settings it says Secure Connection: No. How do I make it so I have one? I check marked Use HTTPS. Thanks!
