With so much buzz about privacy and people prying into other people’s lives, whether by listening to our conversations or recording us on video, it makes us wonder about all the ways people can spy on us. Hidden cameras have been found in some private locations.
When you lodge into a hotel especially as you travel to an unfamiliar destination on business trips or holidays, someone might actually be trailing you without your knowledge.
The first thing you do when you check into a hotel room is to look round to spot tell-tale signs because cameras may be hidden, the lens can only be camouflaged. Be sure to check logical places like the bedroom, in the living room, or especially near valuable items.
Meanwhile the Common items to have video cameras hidden in them include books, smoke detectors, desk plants, house plants, tissue boxes, stuffed teddy bears and electrical outlets.
However, we can still check these places and find nothing, do not fret because we are in the era of smart devices and one’s smart phone can do the detection.
Here is the way to check-out if a camera is planted in your room (DIY method).
- When you have entered into your room, turn off the lights, and close the curtains, open your phone camera, don't turn the flash on.
- Turn around the room with your cell phone, when a red dot is found, that means that a hidden web camera is installed.
The absence of the red dots shows that the room is clean.
