Essential Info

The FakeTV FTV-11-US Burglar Deterrent is an effective and affordable way to deter home invasions from criminals and burglars at night. Instead of using motion-sensing activated lights and loud audible alerts, the FakeTV emits simulated light in flashing unique patterns from 12 bright LEDs that mimic, and are the equivalent to, your standard 40-inch high definition television to give intruders the idea that you are home when you're not. The FakeTV includes a built-in light sensor that automatically turns the bright and powerful LED lights on at night, or when lighting in the room is low, to run up to four or seven hours. Like real television programming, FakeTV is constantly shifting among more and less dynamic periods, more vivid and monochromatic, and brighter and darker scenes; it is completely unpredictable, and never repeats. FakeTV makes your home look occupied in a way that a light on a timer cannot by offering the impression that someone is inside your home watching television.


What's Included

  • 1x - FakeTV TV Simulator, 40 Inches

  • More Info

    The best FakeTV applications are second story windows, where you can see the light from FakeTV with no shade, but cannot see the FakeTV unit. For first story installations, you will generally need window coverings to prevent prowlers from seeing in. Blinds or drapes need to be translucent, or adjusted to allow a little light through. It may even be worth buying an inexpensive light-filtering shade, just to get the best occupancy simulation out of FakeTV.
