We have a chain of stores and had Swann survelliance cameras installed SW233-W2Y. We got an anonymous tip that one of our managers connected the cameras to the Internet which we instructed not to- closed circuit ONLY! It was reported to us that one individual is viewing the cameras via Internet.
How we can find out if this individual is accessing the cameras from the Internet on his Blackberry/laptop and office computer?
Some surveillance DVRs have a logging system built into them where the DVR logs each time a user logs into the DVR. If your DVR has such a log, I would recommend looking at it to see what activity has been going on.
If you want to make sure this employee does not view your cameras again, there are several things that you can do:
Make sure there is no network connection available near the DVR
Disable all outside access to your network on your router
If you have other network devices that must be accessed from the Internet, just disable the ports that your DVR uses
Make sure that only you have the password to your router so the settings can not be changed
You mentioned that some surveillance DVRs have a logging system built into them where the DVR logs each time a user logs into the DVR. Is there anyway that person can alter/delete anything on this logging system?
I forgot to ask if there is a logging system to the DVR how it will indicate that the Internet was used? In the the logging system is there something that indicates the camera was switched to Internet viewing?
