I would like to know if there is a risk using the RPi to power the servos when implementing the security camera with secuCam.

It is not recommended to power a servo with the Raspberry Pi. As indicated in the manual for secuCam, the servos should need to be powered using an independent power source.
One simple solution is to use a cable with 2 USB terminations in one side (micro USBs) and one termination on the other side (normal USB). This way you will have the same earth level in both micro USBs. One to power the RPi and the other for the Servos.
