I’m thinking about forwarding a couple of ports so that my wife can see our video camera feeds from a Smarttiles dashboard when she is away from home. Right now, we have to use the Synology Surveillance Station mobile app to see our cameras, and she absolutely hates that app. (She, of course, loves Smarttiles).
I’ve forwarded ports before for limited times/specific uses (so I understand the concept and how to set it up), but I’ve always been a little nervous about forwarding my cameras. We have two Foscam cameras, and while I have changed all the passwords, etc., the Foscam web app doesn’t exactly scream “high security” to me.
For those of you with more experience in this area, is there anything I should keep in mind?
