Fake TV -- great burglar protection!
A year or so ago I ran across a Fake TV unit on Amazon. Unfortunately, I was influenced by some negative reviews, and did not order it at that time.
However, a month ago I decided to order one anyway, and check it out. What a surprise! This is a great little gadget which perfectly duplicates the flickering light of a computer screen. I set it up within three feet of an upstairs window that was covered with a thin curtain. It turns itself on at dark and can be set to run for either four or seven hours each night.
When it was dark, I checked the window from the street. Super-realistic but perhaps too bright. I went back and moved the unit to seven feet back from the window. Perfect!
I brought a friend around who always says he doesn't worry about burglars. Nevertheless, when he saw the effect, he ordered one right away.
From time to time I plan to buy a new product and test it out. If I don't like it I'll return it, but if I do like it I will recommend it and explain why. To cover my costs and time, I will include a link to an Amazon affiliates account. Your cost will be the same as if you order directly, but Amazon will give me a tiny commission. Okay with you? If so, click here to order the Fake TV:
If you order it, please let me know if it meets your expectations.
