Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love. And a smart home security camera, among other smart devices.

When thinking of getting yourself a home security camera, most people have in mind that final scene where they sit comfortably on the sofa, binge-watch some movie, while the camera takes Sauron’s place and gives them heads up whenever someone stares awkwardly at their flowers.

But what happens when someone watches over your home security camera?

In a previous article, we mentioned that cameras are a key component in home security systems, so when thinking of installing a camera, correct placement is critical. But is correct placement enough?

Useful tips on how to protect your outdoor home security camera

  1. Make sure you place your camera beyond reach.
  2. Make sure you position it in safe, not-so-obvious places.
  3. Spruce up your doorway with some lights.
  4. Check your camera from time to time.
  5. Get yourself a hard-to-get smart home security camera.


Speaking of smart home security cameras, eyecloudCam is the first battery-powered security camera to run an embedded neural network. It is driven by an Intel Movidius 12 core VPU with low power requirements. The system was designed for high-performance vision processing to achieve human-level perception, except it sees in the dark. And it doesn’t get sick if it stays in the rain. For battery-power saving reasons, eyecloudCam runs on idle mode: it sleeps with one half of the brain while the other half remains alert.

Okay, okay – but is a smart home security camera such as eyecloudCam intelligent and vigilant enough to stay protected from physical threats such as burglars? You know, people can turn into creative masterminds to reach unreachable cameras placed in peculiar [not-so-obvious] places.

Let’s say someone steals the camera. Only the admin (Master account) can manage the camera. Even if the camera is reset, the Master account won’t be changed. Therefore, the thief won’t be able to pair the camera with a new account. Also, the probability of the Admin receiving footage from his/her stolen camera is quite high.

In conclusion, if someone manages to steal an intelligent home security camera, it might be useless for them since they won’t be able to access it in any way whatsoever.
