SimpliCam Taking Video Without Permission
On the website when I purchased the SimpliCam it says "SimpliCam was built with a stainless steel privacy shutter to give you complete control over your privacy. The privacy shutter only opens with your permission. It protects your video feed with the same level of encryption used by banks to protect their accounts." I found this compelling enough to get over my level of discomfort re: having a camera in the house, and it's been nice to check in on the dog when I'm out. However, it doesn't say anywhere that the system is forced to take a minute long video whenever you disarm the system, which for the average person is at least once a day when they turn it off in the morning. This happens even if the camera is nowhere in the vicinity of the keypad. I understand that someone out there might want the feature, but for the love of god why can you not turn it off?
