Title: Remote Access to Device with MAC and Serial#
Post by: kyle.dawson on May 20, 2015, 01:58:49 pm
I have setup my device from the getvera.com site.  I put in my MAC and serial #.  I created account and all works good.   But if someone was to get my MAC and Serial number, would they be able to gain access as well, create account, etc.  Just making sure there is not back door allowed if you have that info.

I believe the answer is no. And there might have been a post somewhere else about this. Once the unit itself is registered there is some security exchange so the short answer is no, that can't happen.
