HOUSTON (CBS Local) — A Texas couple says someone hacked into the Nest WiFi wireless camera network they use to keep an eye on their infant son and pretended to kidnap the baby.

Nathan and Ellen Rigney, of Houston, say it happened Monday just before midnight when they were fast asleep downstairs and 4-month-old Topper was asleep upstairs. Ellen Rigney said she suddenly heard beeping coming from the monitor next to her bed.

“I said, ‘Hey, what is this? What’s going on?’” she told KPRC. “Then we heard sexual expletives being said in his room.”

When the Rigneys jumped out of bed and turned on the light, a Nest camera in their room, which had been off, suddenly turned on, and a man’s voice ordered them to turn the light off.

“Then he said, ‘I’m going to kidnap your baby, I’m in your baby’s room,'” Ellen Rigney said.

While wildly shooting like a madman at a camera next to your baby in the dark, what are the odds your baby comes out safe? Pretty bad odds.
People who use IP cameras with limited security..........

I'm curious if their home WiFi was hacked or were the cameras connected to some kind of Nest cloud that was hacked.

It was probably an unsecured IP camera so they could check on the baby remotely, like dad could look in from work or whatever.

I said in another post that all my neighbors use the same cameras, THE YI camera, each week we change out the pin access code and hand deliver that code. Adding a new code and adding access is all of 5 minutes.

What this does is allows our neighbors ( we all work different times ) to access incase they suspect something is wrong, to capture the footage for each other and also alert the police.

So here's how it breaks down: I come home, I set my cameras to a specific path that doesn't reveal anything I don't want my neighbors to see, when I leave the house, I choose the other alternate path that allows my neighbors/family/friends to see anything within the path I choose and walk away.

They can't change paths, can't turn on my cameras randomly, can't listen in if not set. Each neighbor shares the pin code that is changed weekly.

The camera shows who has accessed you camera, for how long and why. It's because there is full recorded history on the camera and on the card, that is also available within seconds ( average of 1.2 ) with the app.

I can report anything around my neighbor to them if need be and have a full recorded video of the event.

This guy sold me on it, and I ran with it, and nobody so far is displeased with how easy it was to setup and share.

That sounds like a good setup, you're lucky to have neighbours that you can trust and work with like that. It takes neighbourhood watch to a new level.
