MacVoices #20092: Glenn Fleishman Takes Control of Home Security Cameras

Glenn Fleishman has a brand new book, Take Control of Home Security Cameras, which goes way behind just buying one and connecting it. Glenn joins us to discuss the origin of the book, some of the factors you need to consider when selecting a camera, and what you can do if you’ve already got a camera in your home. He also discusses Apple HomeKit Secure Video and what it means for your privacy, and talks about some of the options he can recommend.
