Has my camera been hacked?
« on: March 11, 2021, 02:36:47 PM »

Hi all.  I'm using a D Link 8525LH camera for inside the home.  I've had it for just under two years and in the past week, I keep getting notifications on the app on my phone that the device has been removed.  Not sure why as I haven't pressed the reset button on the camera for this to happen.  It happens about twice a day at the moment. Is this a sign that it's been/is being hacked?
Thank you.

  • What Hardware version is your DCS? Look at the sticker behind or under the camera.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DCSs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What Mfr and model is the main host router?

Has the camera been factory reset and setup from scratch?

Sounds more like a WiFi problem.

Maybe reboot your router when you get a chance.
