Google re-integrates Xiaomi, China firm says Google Nest Hubs connected to its security cameras can no longer access feeds from random homes

However it seems like its possible for any partnered company to purposefully access any camera if they wanted to. Perhaps Google can catch this behavior on their end but is it something that they actively look for? Doesn’t seem like it if this one customer was able to accidentally do so.

can no longer access feeds from random homes

Yeah, that ‘random’ is the keyword here… I bet you a jelly donut it can still be used to access arbitrary feeds, if you have the right credentials…

And given that a major US govt dept recently decided using Chinese-made drones was a risk…

Can ANY camera made in China that has comms capabilities be trusted?
