Airbnb is promoting a range of surveillance devices designed to monitor guests.
“We want to help you protect your space, maintain the privacy of your guests, and preserve your relationship with neighbors,” the company says on its website. “This means helping you detect issues in real time.”
The devices include the Minut device which “monitors noise, temperature, motion, humidity and alarms when your property is unoccupied.”
The NoiseAware Indoor Sensor “will alert you within minutes of sustained noise levels, not instantaneous noises like doors slamming,” and is being marketed as “the best way to protect your home, your neighbors, and your reputation.”
