Some hosts have installed security and recording devices in their space. This is allowed on Peerspace, as long as they disclose it to their guests.
All hosts are required to indicate:
- Whether they have any recording devices on the property
- Where the devices are located
- Whether they are turned on or off
Please read the listing description and the Host Rules to find this information. If you have any questions, you may contact your host via Peerspace messages.
Recording devices are prohibited in private areas
It’s also important to note that Peerspace does not permit security cameras or other recording devices in private spaces, such as bathrooms, regardless of whether they have been disclosed. Of course, a private space will not include any portion of a space that has been booked to carry out a specific commercial purpose (for example, a photo shoot for bedding which takes place in a bedroom). Any concealed or undisclosed recording devices are strictly prohibited.
What is considered a security camera or recording device?
Any device that can capture or transmit audio, video, or still images is considered a recording device and subject to these rules. This may include but it’s not limited to wi-fi cams (Nest), video doorbells (Ring), webcams, baby monitors, or smartphones.
We are working hard to create a safe, reliable, and trustworthy community. Here are some of the things we’re doing behind the scenes to minimize booking risk and create peace of mind.
