Videos like these do not need further explanation
With rising popularity of IP cameras such as Dropcam, burglars are increasingly on the lookout for them.

Even when the Dropcam gets stolen and disabled the footage remains stored in the cloud. This allows the victims to at least establish a timeline.
However, by hiding your Dropcam you can ensure that intruders don't disable the camera when they break into your house AND you get to keep your Dropcam!
