I wasn't sure exactly where to post this, but here goes.
I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out what this thing was.
A couple of years ago my family and I were on vacation in San Diego and staying at a motel (not sure which chain it was). There was a small black
thingy on the wall with a small red light inside of it (it looked kind of like the things on the ceilings at Kmart, etc..which I always assume are
cameras but if they're something else please tell me, I'm uninformed
). I thought it might be some kind of smoke detector but wasn't sure. It
didn't look anything like a normal detector. I was joking with my parents about it being a hidden camera, and that it was watching us, so just on a
lark I got a kleenex and covered it. Not 5 seconds later the phone rang. It was the motel staff, saying that they were just calling to make sure
everything was alright and satisfactory in our room. This has NEVER happened before. Was the black thing something normal that's in all motel rooms?
(I've never seen it elsewhere though.) Did they call as some sort of safety precaution? Was it a camera? Or am I just paranoid?
Any information would be helpful! Thanks.
