Insecurities as a Traveler? Read how the new surveillance tool Lexuma XScan provide all the protection you need during your trips
As a growing number of travelers are choosing less regulated accommodations to reduce their cost for more savings on the road, more and more are discovering the most threatening danger of living under these poorly regulated rentals: being watched and recorded by hidden cameras.
Despite the fact that most of the cheap accommodations implement a strict privacy standard, and that the hosts are usually required to disclose all security cameras and other recording devices in their listings, it is revealed that their online and remote customer service enforce poorly when the privacy issues really occur.
Here’s one recent case of a family discovering hidden cameras in the smoke detector in their stay:
After arriving at their Airbnb in Cork, Ireland, a family from New Zealand made an unsettling discovery: a hidden camera, livestreaming from the living room.
Even when the guests discover hidden cameras in the rentals, the platforms often fail to solve their immediate needs regarding their personal security and disclosure of the recorded data, and the involved apartments often still open for other booking without warning.
Therefore, it’s best to be proactive and take matters into your own hands.
Here we present the brand new all-in-one handheld detector for you adventurers to travel around the world without the need to worry about personal security.
1. Hidden Camera Detection : A Thorough Scanning when you Check in
Whether it be a vacation rental property, a hotel room or a low budget apartment, check the entire space to protect your own privacy.To detect hidden cameras in a stranger’s house, the Lexuma XScan is a handheld portable device designed to detect cameras of radio waves, magnetic field, hidden wired or wireless camera equipment by infrared scanning.
By looking through the viewfinder on the detector, any hidden cameras can be revealed as it will reflect a spot of the red light back. Using the device on all surfaces to uncover reflective camera lens will help you to spot hidden cameras easily. You may have to pay extra attention to check for unusual brands on wall devices and electronic equipment. Your place is most likely safe and camera-free if you can't find any red light reflected. If you do find any suspicious item, unplug, store or rearrange them. Most importantly, contact the customer service and your host to inspect further on the incident.
2. Motion Alert: Avoiding Theft and Malicious Break ins
Apart from being a detector, the XScan also serves as a motion sensor when you activate the motion alert mode. When you’re back in your accommodation for a rest, hang the device on the door knob, so that it can stay alert and warn you when anything suspicious in motion is walking near your door, or even intending to break in. A loud noise would be triggered immediately and ring for at least 15 seconds once the sensor detects motion nearby. That way you are under a protection comparable to any security system, and any kind of malicious break in could be avoided.
The function also works well when you wish to protect your valuables from being stolen. If you are staying in a spot for a longer period, or you have to leave your belongings for a short while, hang your Lexuma XScan on your belongings and turn on the motion alert mode.
