How can something like this happen?  It turns out security cameras and DVRs are just network connected computers, and they can be hacked just like any other computer.  However, it’s worse than that, a large number of these systems ship with default passwords, so anyone who can connect to them can get into the system and install any software they want.

TRENDnet Outdoor 3 MP PoE Dome Network Surveillance Camera with Night Vision, TV-IP311PI

The TRENDnet TV-IP311PI network camera is a nice solution if you want an outdoor camera that supports Power Over Ethernet (POE). To get started with this camera on Sensr.net, just plug it into a POE router and it will grab an IP address via DHCP. To find the IP address, you can use the included software or just look at the attached devices on your router’s admin page.
