According to Femi Branch, the act of placing cameras in the rooms where guests stay and sleep poses serious security threats to the guests because the cameras record their conversations which could be about business dealings, money and other personal issues. To this end, some of the guests might be targeted, attacked, robbed or even killed by some agents that may be working with the information given by the hotel.

The truth is that, security cameras may be used in hotels but not in the hotels rooms where guests lodge. Security cameras can be used around the fence and other areas to help with surveillance so that the hotel will be on the alert in case if any danger arises. But, placing secret cameras in the rooms where guests stay and sleep is an invasion of privacy taken too far.
