Simplisafe Security Cams

Fecha de la reseña 02/11/2020

DIY security systems are all the rage these days. Simplisafe offers a plethora of motion sensors, water sensors, panic buttons, and these security cameras. At $99 a pop, the camera comes with the usual features -- HD video, motion detection, streaming to your phone via an app that lets you record with the push of a button. They even claim to use "intelligent detection algorithms" that can determine the heat signature of a human and only send alerts that matter. We like that they use high-level end-to-end encryption to protect your video feed. We don't like that when we emailed them to ask some questions, they signed us up for their email list without permission.

Qué podría pasar si algo falla

Boy howdy! One sure way to leave a privacy researcher unimpressed with your privacy practices--or lack thereof--is to sign them up to your email list without their permission when they email you to ask questions about your privacy practices. That's exactly what Simplisafe did when we reached out to them. Bad bad bad! They say they share your data, with consent, for marketing purpose. Which isn't too bad. But while videos are automatically deleted after 30 days, you can't delete them yourself. Which isn't great. What's could happen if something goes wrong? You want to delete a video a neighbor asked you to take down, find you can't, email Simplisafe to ask them to take it down, they eventually do but now you're signed up to their email list even though you didn't want that.

SimpliSafe’s home security system can be compromised by a $2 wireless emitter
Cameron Faulkner
SimpliSafe’s latest home security system can apparently be fooled by an affordable wireless emitter that mimics the frequency of its door and window contact sensors. The YouTube channel LockPickingLawyer posted a video demonstrating how it can be done, and, unfortunately, it looks very easy to do — as easy as pressing a button to make sure an alarm won’t go off when someone breaks into a house.
Student finds privacy flaws in connected security and doorbell cameras
Florida Institute of Technology
Ring, Nest, SimpliSafe and eight other manufacturers of internet-connected doorbell and security cameras have been alerted to "systemic design flaws" discovered by Florida Tech computer science student Blake Janes that allows a shared account that appears to have been removed to actually remain in place with continued access to the video feed.
