TL;DR: Worried about hidden cameras in your Airbnb, hotel, or public restrooms? The Scout hidden camera detector can help you spot them and stay safe. Grab one for only $38.99 or two for $66.99!

Hidden cameras aren't just used on Impractical Jokers and Big Brother. While they can create hilarious or dramatic content, in the real world, they have a more insidious agenda. If you've seen the news stories covering cameras hidden in Airbnbs and hotels, you know exactly what we're talking about.

While we (sadly) can't control everything, there is a gadget that can help you get some peace of mind when traveling: the Scout hidden camera detector. It's easy to use, effective, and you can get one here for only $38.99 (reg. $99.99) or a pack of two for $66.99 (reg. $199.99).

Reclaim your privacy — no fear, Scout is here!

The Scout hidden camera detector works by flashing high-powered LED lights that reflect off camera lenses. It works with all types of cameras — CCTV, spy cameras, your iPhone, and whatever other cameras may exist in dark corners.

Here's how to use it:

  1. Stand five to fifteen feet away from an item you think may have a concealed camera — an outlet, smoke detector, wall decor, clock, or anywhere else.
  2. Hold the Scout detector against your eye with the LEDs pointing away from you.
  3. Use solid or flashing light modes while looking through the aperture. 
  4. If you see a red pinpoint of light, you may have just found a hidden camera!

Your purchase includes a practice camera lens so you can get familiar with using the Scout before trying to scope out real-world cameras. Hopefully, you won't find any, but now you can rest assured that your space is clear and enjoy your vacation!

Bye-bye, camera crooks!
