if you are so concerned turn it off when not needed, all security cameras record sound so not a big deal.

I may be missing the point here, But why is it dangerous, The idea of a security camera is to monitor what is happening. If you setup a security camera in your home don't you want it to monitor what is happening in your home ? If you are worried that it is spying on you turn it off while you are at home.

If you feel uncomfortable with recording sound let's say, when you are at home, you can go on settings and set sleep times. but a camera is there to monitor so there is really nothing wrong with that feature

I second what the users have been saying, it's the camera's job to monitor the place,both audio and video. It's dead easy to switch off, so...

I assume its normal, I just turn mine off when not needed. I suppose it's like Alexa or Google's one which constantly monitors voices and sounds

I only turn mine on when I am out or got to bed, is that not the purpose?
