Is this a security flaw?

I have the stickup camera. Setup and working well.

 

I have found it will connect to an open wireless access point that has the same name as my network.

I created an open wireless hotspot (no password) on my phone using the same name as my home wireless network, when I shut off my home wireless the stickup cam automatically connected to the open hotspot.

 

This could possibly be used by hackers as an attack vector.

 

Ring cameras should only connect to a access point using the correct wireless password.

But mine connects to an open AP of the same name without any password whatsoever.

 

Hackers could create a man-in-the-middle attack.

 

This is quite worrying.
