Question Device to Remotely Cover a Security Camera?


Novice Member
I have a vacation rental with an interior security camera. I'll use a remote controllable device to power it off when it is being rented and back on when it is vacant, but I still feel that guests will not be comfortable with it.

I do have a SmartThings Z-Wave Hub. The security camera is standing upright and on a level surface above my kitchen cabinets and there is leveled space in front of it for a device to cover/shield it. Is there a device that exists could be used to shield the view of the Security Camera that can go up and then retract back down? I feel like the device I'm looking for, if it even exists, is going to take some creative thinking to come up with an idea. I honestly wouldn't care if it was a device or multiple devices that look completely out of place. For example if I placed a few meant to be in-ground garden sprinklers that actually are able to go up then stop, and then retract remotely I'm pretty sure my guests would prefer the garden sprinklers over the security camera.
