Yes, cameras and listen devices are still planted in washrooms and bathrooms by voyeurs. They can be hidden in a public restroom, an office washroom, a hotel bathroom and even in rented property bathrooms as in the story above. If you are responsible for security for a restaurant, hotel, business or rental property, you should not overlook the potential for the property to be compromised by hidden cameras. Once privacy is compromised, it can damage to your brand and lead to lawsuits. A physical inspection for hidden cameras, cell phones, and other recording devices in washroom and bathrooms should be conducted on a regular basis. And, if there is suspicion of electronic eavesdropping, call ComSec. Our bug sweep experts detect electronic eavesdropping devices that are well hidden and/or passive until activated.
