We know that keeping your space safe is a top priority, and so some of you have installed security and recording devices in your space. This is allowed on Peerspace, as long as you disclose it to your 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
When guests book your space, they’ll now also acknowledge that they’ve read your rules, as well as the notice about your recording devices.
If a guest does not receive notice about your recording devices, they will be allowed to cancel a booking and receive a full refund. If you have upcoming bookings where the guest has not been notified yet, you may want to send them a message ahead of their booking with the recording device information included.
Where can I input my recording device information?
- Go to your listing page (https://www.peerspace.com/mylistings)
- Click on the “Edit Space” button
- Click “Edit” on item #2: “Parking & Recording Devices”
- You can add your recording device notice in the second section on this page
Once the information is added, you’ll see it displayed on your listings in the “Host Rules” section, as well as in the checkout process.
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.
