You’ve no doubt read or heard stories similar to this InfoSec consulatant on vacation. Became concerned or paranoid upon seeing two smoke detectors 10 feet from the other in rental sleeping accommodations.
If your really concerned and pack your Win10 Computer along on vacation or an android tablet, phone, etc. or other smart device you could in theory spot discrepancies or issues with smoke detectors, clock radios, screwheads, etc. Expectation of privacy in rented housing🤣.
It won’t be like the movies or tv and tell you that the smoke detector is a camera, the clock, the clothes hooks, the screw, the lamp, etc.
Nakedsecurity.sophos will be releasing a short video of available applications that might help you sniff out webcams on vacation.
They will not be giving instructions on how , I will not be giving instructions on how to use.
Best suggestion if you read the manual and can wrap your head around how they work , your call.
With a fair warning using them can be a PITA, can be considered No no if used say at work. Your employers or IT Dept. may become agitated, etc. At work no privacy is to be expected anywhere but, throne room. Loading docks, lobbies, etc just assume it.
Video link will be up tomorrow for there you tube channel. It’s either nakedsecurity or Sophos.
Or just go to nakedsecurity.sophos.com and type videos in search bar tomorrow from their website.
Ducklin will be make the presentation, think it was 8-10 minutes in duration. I watched live today.
That’s about it, I’ve used similar programs/apps in past and briefly was infosec for someone using different programs only clues will be shown in broadcast.My programs were on $30k laptop similar but, different.

Casting to your TV might help or not, viewing YouTube videos on desktop vs 48-60” tv is improvement. Actually YouTube may have videos on use of app’s /programs.
I admit I thought about not posting this but, recalled my own experiences in Holland for month and playing room tag for a clean room, with no devices installed.
Difference I had computer and access to US adapters.
And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!
