I guess hacking can be a concern. But my cameras are hard wired and isolated on a separate segment on my home network. I only allow certain IP blocks to have access to the cameras. For remote access, the only way you're getting to the cameras is via the SSL VPN server I have set up for secure remote access. So as far as security is concern, it's all about how the system is implemented.

I also had a similar reaction with the Hikvision name. Thought it was going to be some cheap fly by night operation.
