Protection against deauther

I am using 5 cameras to protect my house. Last October there where made trials to overcome the camera functions by using  a deauther to switch off the connection between the cameras and the VMB4000 and surprise or not, it was succesful.
Would´nt it be a good idea to protect the cameras by upgrading the software so that a deauther for less than 20 USD could not switch off the cameras?

Hello, JessicaP!


That means for me and the users of all cameras that they are not protected against deauther. That means also that they are not a security cameras if you can switch off them from outside by using a piece of electronics which costs 20 USD. Very disappointing.
