After arriving at their Airbnb in Cork, Ireland, a family from New Zealand discovered a hidden camera livestreaming from the living room.
Nealie and Andrew Barker, from Auckland, arrived at the Airbnb property with their four children and niece. Once the family had unpacked, Andrew Barker, who works in IT security, scanned the house’s Wi-Fi network. The scan found a camera and a live feed. The family found the camera hidden in what appeared to be a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector. Andrew Barker called the owner of the property. When told about the camera, the host hung up. He later called back insisting the camera in the living room was the only one in the house. The family relocated to a nearby hotel and called Airbnb the following day.
