IP camera support on Fibaro is about to become history. I love my HC2 but unless Fibaro implement simple "digest authentication" for IP cameras, support is about to die off. Here's why: Recent vulnerabilities have forced some IP camera manufacturers to REMOVE basic authentication. Fibaro ONLY supports basic authentication. Digest authentication has been around since the 90's and is one step above basic or "plain text" authentication (visible in packet captures). It is becoming more difficult to upgrade or buy new cameras that support basic authentication. Dahua - Since early 2017, basic authentication is now disabled in Dahua firmware. - In 2016, Dahua started signing its firmware which stops downgrades to unsigned versions. - So there's no solution once you have newer firmware installed. Not to mention the lack of support for RTSP, with MJPEG becoming obsolete. Digest auth is needed just to keep existing functionality. Beware of upgrading your IP cameras!
