How to Spot Hidden Cameras in Hotels, Vacation Rentals

They were settling into their Airbnb. Then they found a hidden camera.

1,600 Motel Guests Were Secretly Streamed Live in South Korea

Airbnb Has a Hidden Camera Problem

"Police say it can happen to any of us - you go on vacation, you rent an Airbnb, maybe you stay in a hotel room... and someone is spying on you, watching your private moments on hidden cameras - even in the bedroom.

"The Barker family was settling into their Airbnb in Cork, Ireland, another stop on their 14-month trek around Europe, when they discovered something disturbing. On the ceiling in the living room, hidden inside a detector, was a camera."

"Tiny cameras with one-millimeter lenses were hidden in hair dryer holders, satellite boxes and closed electrical sockets, the police said. More than 800 intimate videos were then shown on a website that charged some viewers for a monthly subscription."

"Two small, black, rectangular boxes were stacked next to an outlet on the far side of the guest room, both facing the bed. From afar, they looked like phone chargers. But when Vest got closer, he realized they were cameras.

In a survey of 2,000 Airbnb guests, 58% said they were worried about hidden cameras in their rental. 1

Hidden Cameras are a real problem. The New York Times, Washington Post, and BBC have all covered the problem extensively - any hotel, Airbnb, or restroom could have spy cameras installed without your knowledge.


That clock over there? It's in every hotel room, ever.

It also has a camera in it. It's pointed right at the bed and can record high-resolution video whenever someone moves in front of it.



Scout Is A Brand New Hidden Camera Finder

Scout uses high-powered LEDs that reflect off camera lenses. Doesn't matter if it's a CCTV camera, your iPhone, or a spy camera - Scout finds it.

Just look through Scout's aperture and you'll see a pinpoint of bright red light if it detects a camera.




What's in the Box


Scout Camera Finder

Hidden Camera Practice Lens

Instructions

2xAAA Batteries





How to use Scout


1. Stand 5-15 feet directly in front of the item you think may be concealing a hidden camera.

2. With the LEDs pointing away from you, hold Scout up against your eye so you can look through the aperture.

3. Use the button on Scout to turn the LEDs on.

There are two settings - solid and flashing. Most people prefer the flashing option.

4. Look through the aperture of Scout towards the suspected hidden camera.

If you see a red pinpoint of light shining back at you, you may have found a hidden camera.
 



Frequently Asked Questions


How does it work?

 

Scout bounces light off camera lens. Most cameras also have an infrared filter, which will bounce even more back.

 

How do I use the pinhole lens?

 

Hold the ribbon on the practice lens at arm's length so the camera is looking at you.

Use Scout on the lens and you'll see the red pinpoint of light bouncing off.

 

How long do the batteries last?

 

A very long time. With regular use, the 2xAA batteries will last well over a year.

 

What's the return policy?

 

It's a 30-day return period, no questions asked.

Scout comes with a one year warranty. If anything goes wrong, you can reach out to us by phone, live chat, or email on SpyGuy.

Cool Item

I would say I was impressed by the physics of it. The tech could be better in terms of auto detecting cameras. But as a manual tool its pretty good and point out exactly where camera lens are. Just takes time to learn its use.

Safety and privacy top goal

I bought this product for traveling. Hotel rooms, bathrooms. I feel secure knowing that I have control of cameras where they don’t belong.

Hidden Camera detector

Easy to use and seems like it will detect hidden devices, can’t give a complete review as haven’t had a chance to try it out with an actual hidden camera.

Took this with me to vegas

I recently went on a trip to Vegas by myself and I wanted to be extra cautious. I’m glad they give you a sample hidden camera so you know what to look for. I’ll definitely be taking this to each hotel and airbnb I go to!

Hidden Camera Detector

Excellent product! It detected the test lens as well as a previously purchased (from Spy Guy) clandestine camera. I have it on my packing list for every future trip!
