    So let me get this straight.
    You have a solid gold bathtub worth 1 million dollars and you don't have any security cameras?
    I know it's a bathtub, but for fuck's sake, grow a fucking brain.
    Not only that, but it weighs 176lb. And it was on the 10th floor. And no-one saw ANYTHING? No suspicious looking characters trying to hid a bathtub under their coat? Or complaining about their backs perhaps? Good grief.
    I call insurance scam on this. That, or retardedness on a massive scale.

    So you're saying there should be security cameras monitoring the bathroom? That's a lawsuit right there.

    What would make more sense would be TO NOT HAVE A GIANT GOLD BATHTUB.

    That's funny that stuff like that happens. But I'm liable to believe it, too. Thieves are... really cunning like that.

    Oh come on, you're no fun! :hookday

    Well, they could have put one in the hallway outside of it. That would have worked, unless the thieves dropped it out the window or something.

    I'm betting it was ninjas.

    Probably did the same thing we did in the dorms with kegs, put a big box for a tv or in this case a refrigerator over it and walked right out the front door.

    why not just position the camera inside the bathroom, but angled so it cannot see anyones private parts, or anyone in the bath itself.

    See, what the ninjas did was sneak in, paint the bathtub white, and while the hotel staff was running around looking for a solid gold bathtub the next morning, the ninjas walked in the front door dressed as bathtub repair men, went up to the tenth floor, put the bathtub on a dolly, and brought it down right out to their Bathtub Repairmen Van, and then drove away laughing.

    A camera that doesn't get a view of the actual tub is still going to catch anyone trying to steal it.
    Is it really that hard to think of these things, or are you just picking for the hell of it?

    I still don't think that would be possible. People are naked in more parts of the bathroom then just the bathtub. Also people who are staying in a room with a 1 million dollar bathtub are probably the people who cant afford the possibility of nude shots being passed around. Definately should be cameras outside the door and in the hallways though.

    i actually thought abt it and having a background that relates to the building industry, their best bet of placing cams would prolly be in the corridor leading to the room itself. no way theyd risk putting any cams inside the room itself, knowing the kind of clientele those kinda room get, the hotel would get their asses sued.

    you can have alarm sensors and stuff, but not camera which would violate privacy, since hotels are public facility.

    Waitaminit. Is this a high-class brothel? It would explain the lack of cameras.

    We have a bathroom here on campus in a student union that gets vandalized quite a bit. Obviously a camera in the bathroom is a HUGE no-no due to those pesky privacy rights, so we did the next best thing -- a covert camera across the hallway from the door, and pressure sensors in the walls inside the bathroom. If anyone punches a hole in the wall or rips a paper towel dispenser down, the pressure sensors activate and trigger the strobe on the fire alarm annunciator just outside the bathroom door. All we have to do is review the footage for whomever exits the bathroom right after we start to see the strobe flashing.

    System works like a charm.
