Hello. My cameras were also hacked, I know it’s the neighbors upstairs. Some of My footage was deleted :slightly_frowning_face:. I changed my password, Pin code and added Touch ID security. How can I get my footage back??? How can I obtain a log of my account accesses and activities? I needed this information for legal reasons which is why I was hacked. PLEASE any help or suggestions are appreciated.
