" These cameras may not exactly invite cybercriminals into your home, but they don't do everything in their power to keep the criminals out, either. This is not the only instance in which home security cameras have recently come under fire for poor security. Last week, a group of researchers unearthed a huge flaw in the Samsung SmartCam SNH 1011's software, which the researchers believe may affect the entire Samsung SmartCam line. A company called Hanwha Techwin licenses the Samsung name to produce these cameras. It's possible that the Samsung SmartCam HD, a model that we've reviewed, is affeceted. Cheapo cameras from no name manufacturers are even worse, with some having flaws so egregious that researchers recommended that users literally toss them in the garbage. Unsecured IP security cameras can provide cybercriminals not only with not only video, but usually sound and still photos as well, of your home or office. If that weren't reason enough to choose a secure camera, unencrypted transmissions could also leak your Wi Fi password or router credentials, giving an attacker complete control over your home network. An attacker could even draft your camera into a botnet, such as in the recent Mirai DDoS attacks, or spy on your social media interactions, financial dealings and private correspondences. Owning an IP camera may not be a terrible idea; AV TEST points out that burglaries in its native Germany have increased by 10 percent since last year. If you do, however, try to buy from a reputable manufacturer, and keep the firmware up to date all the time.

In some implementations, the image sensor array 1114 and/or the image processor of the sensor board 1108 is thermally coupled to a heat spreader 1138 that is disposed under the image sensor array 1114 and configured for dissipating heat generated while images are being captured and processed. The sensor board 1108 may include one or more of a power supply connector 11082, an AC DC converter 11084, a voltage regulator 11086 and a power unit 11088. The power supply connector 11082 is electrically coupled to the plurality of wire terminals 720, and configured to receive an external power supply. The AC DC converter 11084 is coupled to the power supply connector 11082 and configured to generate one or more DC supply voltages to drive various electronic components of the doorbell camera 106. The voltage regulator 11086 is configured to regulate the one or more DC supply voltages to one or more internal supply voltages as needed. The power unit 11088 is coupled to the image sensor array 1114 and/or the image processor to provide power therefor.
