I understand your concerns, especially after experiencing a few unusual events while staying in the hotel room. Here are some steps you can take to determine if it is indeed a camera or not: 1. Inspect the device closely: Look for any small holes or openings that may be hiding the lens of the camera. A camera lens typically reflects light, so you can also try shining a flashlight on the device to see if you notice any reflection. 2. Use your phone's camera: Some hidden cameras emit infrared (IR) lights, which are not visible to the naked eye. You can use your phone's camera to look for any IR lights. Just open the camera app and point it towards the suspicious device. 3. Download a hidden camera finder app: There are several apps available (both for Android and iOS) that help you detect hidden cameras by scanning for electromagnetic fields or Wi-Fi signals. Please note that the effectiveness of these apps may vary. 4. Consult the hotel staff: If you are still suspicious, consider discussing your concerns with the hotel management. It might be a legitimate device installed for security purposes, and the staff can provide clarification. 5. Request to change rooms: If you still feel uncomfortable, do not hesitate to request a room change or even consider looking for another hotel. Remember that always trusting your instincts and taking necessary precautions is wise to maintain your privacy and security.
