I reported the hidden camera after I checked out early and they immediately refunded me and suspended the account (and hopefully banned them).
As for how I found it, I used nmap to do a network scan and checked out the IP that wasn’t the router or one of my devices and it had some typical default credentials. I saw this article recently that goes deeper on finding cameras... https://isc.sans.edu/diary/How+to+Find+Hidden+Cameras+in+your+AirBNB/24834
I feel like I should also add that over the course of the last year I have stayed at 27 different AirBnBs and they handled it pretty well after I reported it. Also, I do not think it had anything to do with the fact it was in Yerevan, could have happened anywhere...
@vgan I help run a couple of Airbnb places, I've wondered a few times about how to reassure people about what's NOT there as well as telling them what is.
A page in the guestbook listing all the devices we supply and expect to be on the wifi maybe ... maybe only one person in a hundred would care, but I'd like to make that person happy.
