Default IOT devices and swatting

Wasn't aware of this particularly dirty trick, certainly could screw up someone's day in a hurry. Affects IOT devices such as the Ring doorbell systems and others. Essentially its someone hacking your system, calling in to police and sending the SWAT team to your door, so they can watch it happen thru your system.
