Pretty sure they already have a backdoor for that

Pretty sure the recent smartphones are required by law to be able to have their camera blocked. It was done under the guise of copyright protection (e.g. filming a concert).

I wonder if the smartphone kill switch is about cases where somehow they do get caught in something on film. I'm guessing they'd have the ability to erase your phone.
