FakeTV is a burglar deterrent that recreates the light of a real HDTV television. So from outside, it looks like someone is home watching TV. Most burglars do not target occupied houses. Why not just go to a house that is totally dark. So when a prowler sees that flickering glow that means someone is home watching TV, he'll probably move on to an easier target. So, FakeTV can make a break-in less likely. At the National Hardware show, the spokesperson at Hydreon said their lower-priced FTV-7 simulates the light output of a 27" TV. It is a little smaller in size than the original FTV-10. Also, the FTV-7 has only one timer setting: Dusk +5 hours. The FTV-10 and very bright FTV-11 have two: Dusk +4 hours, and Dusk +7 hours. FakeTV's built-in computer accurately simulates scene changes, fades, and on-screen motion, in thousand of possible shades of color, just like real TV. A built-in light sensor turns FakeTV on at dusk, and it can be set to turn off after four or seven hours. The dynamic light from FakeTV conveys the impression of "alive" in a way that a light on a timer cannot. Consumes just the power of a night light. AC Adapter included. Model FTV-7 is $24.95. Amazon Prime, so free shipping if you're a Prime member.
But I'd opt for the higher power, brighter Fake TV FTV-11 if you have anything but a tiny room. It's just about $6 more and the company says it's three times brighter. It's here for under $31.00 as of 5/23/15. (The Fake TV FTV-10 appears to be on its way out.)
