The words
A [family / familiar] from New Zealand had a shock when they [strayed / stayed] at a hotel in Ireland. There was a hidden camera in their hotel room.

When he was [in / on] his room, he scanned the wifi network at the hotel. He noticed there was one [device / devise] called "IP camera". This device did not [belong / belonging] to him or his wife, so he became suspicious. He was [ability / able] to find the live-stream from the camera on the hotel's network.

The man [finally / final] found the camera hidden in a smoke [detractor / detector] in the ceiling of his hotel room. He immediately [conducted / contacted] the company Airbnb to complain.
