You’re not home, but you’re at peace ‘cos your Home Security Television Simulator is sitting there beaming out television type flickering light patterns on your walls and curtains to scare those nasty burglars far away from your stuff. It’s got an automatic timer to switch on and off to mimic real TV time, and it’s a super low power sipster. Bonus! $39.95.
Unlike timers that just turn lights on and off, this device mimics the flickering glow of a television to dissuade burglars who may be sizing up potential homes for thievery. Its built-in microchip simulates the scene changes, fades, swells, and color shifts of a TV as perceived from outside using a bright multi-color LED display diffused with an opalescent lens. It consumes only 2% of the power of a normal TV and, in addition to manual control, it has a light sensor that automatically turns the device on at dusk
