Going on vacation is the one time people should unquestionably be able to relax and not worry about anything. But if you’re planning on staying at a rental instead of checking into a hotel chain, you may want to take some necessary precautions.
On November 27, 2017, Jason Scott uploaded two photos to his Twitter profile about a camera that was hidden inside a motion detector. A friend of his was staying in a rental home and noticed an odd motion detector in the bedroom.
Instead of brushing it off, he took a closer look and pulled it off of the wall. As it turns out, the seemingly innocent security device was actually a camera in disguise that was spying on guests!
After tweeting about the incident, Jason’s post received 23,000 retweets and 365 comments. While this incident is rare, it’s always good to stay on the safe side and do a sweep of your rental when you first check in.
