Any recommendations for how to securely set up a doorbell camera via Fios internet?

Any recommendations for how to securely set up Internet of Things (IoT) devices (like a Ring doorbell camera) using Fios internet so they will work?

 

Like how to set up a separate VLAN  (virtual LAN), a subnetwork , which can group together collections of devices on separate physical local area networks like for Ring doorbell and door locks and other  IOT devices?

 

And with respect to Verizon G1100 vs G3100 WiFi routers?

 

The FBI (Oregon Field Office) recommended that for Internet of Things (IoT) they should not be on the same network as one's computer - hence the post. (https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices/portland/news/press-releases/tech-tuesday-internet-of-t...)

Hello. Welcome to the Forums. You are largely talking to other customers here.

 

First things first.

 

#1 You only need to use their NAT router if:

 

a) You have FIOS TV One (or maybe I got the wording wrong. Ex FIOS One TV).

 

b) Or if you need support from

 

#2 But please keep in mind: That info is only base upon what I heard/read as I do and never had FIOS before.

If you are the original poster (OP) and your issue is solved, please remember to click the "Solution?" button so that others can more easily find it. If anyone has been helpful to you, please show your appreciation by clicking the "Kudos" button.
