Security camera footage from Australian homes, businesses streaming on website
Footage from hundreds of security cameras monitoring Australian businesses and homes is now available to anyone with an internet connection to view online.
Website Insecam is streaming over 70,000 feeds from internet protocol cameras around the world without the knowledge of the owners of the cameras or those unwittingly filmed by them.
There are currently 924 Australian camera feeds available on the website showing the insides of businesses, factories, building sites and what appear to be private homes.
Internet protocol cameras, or IP cameras, are security cameras similar to CCTV which allow owners to view their camera feeds online.
It is believed the cameras available to view on the Insecam site are accessible because their owners have not changed the default password on their devices.
The managing director of a Queensland traffic management company whose security cameras appeared on the site said the fact that anyone could view the vision was troubling.
