Email received today...Dear Valued Customer,
We have released a new important security and feature enhancement firmware update for the following Amcrest Wi-Fi camera models:
I own a couple of these. So I updated them.
What yo guys smoking over there?
First, https is now completely broken. You can generate a certificate but the "enable" box never shows up, and the port is never opened. In other words, no more https. At all.
Second, the option to REMOVE the lower right hand corner "Amcrest" branding has been deleted. C'mon dudes.
I flashed back to the older stuff immediately. My cameras are firewalled and can't get out from my DMZ anyway, nor can anyone get into them from the outside; only my own code can talk to them.
I'd like to believe in the "improvements" but removing https is not an improvement, nor is forcing branding on the video screens.
