This is why I think it was a surveillance device from day one.
You may be right. I worked for a company who maintained their own copy of the TCP/IP stack for their products (a large block of software going all the way from the device drivers to NIC's (network cards + connectors) to the actual sockets library used for applications development. Many of the source code modules, even senior engineers and architects were just not allowed to touch or even to try and understand, especially routing and encryption. Fixing memory leaks and faulty inter-process synchronisation that was OK.
Any new ideas to TCP/IP were/are introduced through RFC's (Request for Comments) and only universities like Berkeley and Stanford, who did all the research in conjunction with the NSA.
Then time and time again, we find some fundamental obvious bug that should have been fixed ages ago, still lurking there.

I'm with you buddy. Outside cameras I would definitely consider getting,
if I owned my own home, but I live in an apartment, and the owner
would not like cameras in the hallway.
