Apparently their support forums are filled with people today that received a bunch of “test” messages overnight (myself included).
The first reaction is that it was some sort of hack, but so far that doesn’t seem to be the case. The commonality seems to be that the notifications went to Android phones, it was at least half a dozen of them, with several in Chinese (!) and the rest in English with simply “test 2” as the contents.
Some people went as far as unplugging their cameras, yet received several notifications after that. My guess is that it was some kind of remote issue with the foscam dyndns setup (?) or something similar, as that’s so far the only feasible explanation for a notification from an air-gapped camera.
Just a heads up, and another reason why you should consider local access to the camera only. Now if the SmartThings folks would hurry up and implement native support for these things, people could just uninstall the app altogether.
There are several ongoing threads over at foscam.us, such as this one:
