The FakeTV simulates the flickering lights that is associated with the lights coming from a operating television set and its main purpose is to create an illusion that the tenants are at home and act as a burglar deterrent. It is not a new product but the FakeTV FTV-11 is a newer version of this popular product and it features a much brighter screen to simulate a larger 40 inch flat screen TV. It is also 3 times brighter than the FTV-10 that it replaces.
With the introduction of cheap smart home security systems in the market, it might be a good idea to add the FakeTV to the arsenal of home security tools. It would be a simple task to connect the FakeTV to a smart power adapter and hook it up to a smart home system. You can then set up a schedule for the FakeTV to turn on and off not just for the few hours you are away from home in the evening but even for the entire week when the whole family is away on vacation. Alternatively, you can just attach it to a timer.
While you can do this by hooking up your actual TV set, it would be much more cost effective to use the FakeTV. The FakeTV consumes as much power as a night light.
