IP Security Camera Test 2020

German computer periodical PC Magazin has published results of a IP security camera test for consumers. The test was carried out by the Innsbruck test lab AV-Comparatives. Such cameras could be misused to see into the owner’s private life, and so were scrutinised for their own security standards.

The IP security camera test put the following to the test: Anker Eufycam 2C, Arlo Pro 3, Blink XT2, Nest Cam IQ, Ring Stick Up Cam and Yi Technology Kami Dome Camera X. The test showed that the more expensive models tend to be ahead here. Even then, high prices are no guarantee of security; the 330 Euro Nest Cam IQ from Google is not cheap, but only reached a “Satisfactory” standard, and took the last-but-one place in PC Magazin’s ratings. The test results show that however good a camera’s features, picture and sound quality may be, users should pay particular attention to the security provided by this type of device.
