Brookes used an air freshener to conceal a camera
Stephen Brookes, 55, had admitted observing seven women doing private acts after using an air freshener to conceal a camera linked to a mobile phone app.
Leamington Spa Magistrates' Court was told last month that Brookes, of Loxley Road, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, was arrested in September last year after a motion-sensitive camera was seized by police.
Officers also recovered numerous videos from a memory card, an iPhone and an iPad belonging to Brookes.
