New Hikvision Camera With Out Of The Box 5.4.5 Firmware Had "Phone Home" Feature Enabled

Good Day

Let me start by saying I appreciate your efforts to review technology in the security industry.

I know IPVM have said that the Hikvision cameras with Firmware 5.4.5 will come defaulted with the "phone home" feature disabled see screenshot of article below, however I just opened a sealed camera box 3mpixel Hikvision camera with firmware 5.4.5 and the radio button was checked. I guess we need to be checking every camera.
