I have an IP camera at home that we mainly use as a baby monitor. The live video can be accessed using a client/app on my phone or a web interface on the browser.
- I know nothing about the way/protocol that is being used to transmit the video and if it's encrypted or not.
- I worry that someone can hack the web interface since it exposed to the entire world.
Is it a good idea to restrict the access to the camera except from the local network and instead use a VPN client to connect to my home router?
