Just installed a lorex home security system. This is an nvr system much like this one:
Although not exactly like this one linked above it is quite similar, however a newer model. The manual asks to open up some port's but am wondering am I exposing too much to the outside world with something like this:
I do know systems like this are vulnerable due to firmware's rarely being upgraded by homeowners but I am pretty much on top of the firmware upgrades as long as lorex provides them.
Has anyone ever installed one of these and are the ports I've opened up pretty typical to access this stuff?
Forgot to mention this is for a personal house of mine not a business. Recently had some vandalism in our community and a huge drug bust of a family that recently moved near us...Scary stuff..even when you think you are living in a safe place stuff like this happens.
